Eddie Van Halen is a masterful soloist with a great touch and time feel. Tapping notes on a bent string sounds great and is relatively easy to do. Hold the bend in bar 32 and then tap the notes with the circles round on the frets indicated
LLLin the tab. You can of course tap out what ever melody you want with this technique. After tapping a note you can let the string go a little flat and then bend it up to pitch before tapping the next note - just like Eddie.
