can anybody give me any tips for tapping scales across multiple strings for solos etc.
I can tap just fine on one string but as soon as i involve another it just sounds sloppy and bad and i keep making the strings ring when i pull my tapping finger off etc.

Any tips?

When you release a tapping finger from a string that you don't want to ring out, release it while still pressing down slightly on the string. If you release it too quickly you'll do a pull-off and it'll ring, but if you pull off quickly but firmly it should deaden.
I've never attempted to master this technique, but I assume that starting slowly but accurately, and building up muscle memory to increase speed would be the way to go.
