Tapping with Guitar Pick

I've never been a huge tapper when it comes to guitar technique. Much like my sweep picking ability lack of desire and practice have limited my guitar techniques arsenal in this area. But this lick is pretty basic. It involves tapping with the pick. It sounds harder than it is. You'll note from the video I accidentally let the open G string ring out and cause extraneous noise - try not to do that! The guitar is tuned down a half step in this example. I'm a novice tapper so be kind when critiquing this guitar lick. Better yet learn it better than I can play it ( which should be doable) and post it on youtube. Happy Tapping! For more licks and updates don;t forget to follow me on twitter @jimifan. Thanks.
