Tapping Guitar Lick in a blues context

This is an example guitar lick of holding a bend and playing some tapped notes while holding a bend in a blues context. After the tab example I messed around with a little improv to give you a few ideas of some licks that use this guitar technique. I used mainly left hand legato with very little right hand involvement aside from the tapping. It's a bit rough and gritty but I've always been a fan of a loose raw blues some players may want to use a cleaner sound and strive for a more polished use of the technique. Whatever sounds good to you is cool. Ok here it is some tapped blues guitar licks.
