Hello, sorry, my english is so bad but I have a problem.
When I make tapping in string E for exemple, my others strings make a parasitical sound too.
How do you make a beautiful tapping ?
Verry sorry for my english and good bye.

Well, you should mute all other strings you are not playing on. That means if you choose a simple tapping pattern on the high E string then put your left hand on the desired frets and also your right hand which you are going to tap with. Now make sure, that all other strings are covered with the palm of the right hand, and also that your hands playing do not touch the B string below.

If you play on other strings, its a bit harder, because making the pulloffs you can easily hit the neighboring string(s).

To see more about it, here are the basics of tapping (and there are two more related lessons of it too with Kris)

You could try it first with a damper (a piece of cloth). Then when you get the idea you can try to mute the strings with our palm.

Muting is the key, I mute with the right hand when I do tapping, and also the left hand fingers when I can, a dampener helps, but the problem arises when you want to play open strings. But if you are going to do only lead work not using open strings, the dampener is the answer. A sock tied up around the first fret can do the trick.
