It's easy. Using your playing hand, place your finger on a fret, preferably between the 5th and 12th fret of any string (it works the best there). Then using your strumming hand, you "tap" your finger on a higher fret (or a fret further down the neck). Another technique is, using your strumming hand, start tapping a fret. Then using your playing hand, tap two frets a little further up the neck using a hammer-on. For example, tap the 12th fret using the strumming hand, then hammer-on the 5th and 7th frets using your playing hand. Lots of distortion makes it work the best. Good luck!
