new user, question about use

I'd like to use tap to click on the magic mouse, the same way I do on the trackpad.

Tap to click on the mouse works great, the problem is that I have to remove both fingers from the mouse before tapping on either side for a right or left click, if I leave one finger where it is, tapping to click will not work.

Is it possible to have tap to click work while I have a second finger resting on the mouse? So the middle finger would be resting, and then I would tap with my pointer finger to initiate the click.

Thank you!
