QUOTE(Psychotic @ Aug 17 2008, 05:03 PM) [snapback]446294[/snapback]Practice is key. Try to relax your picking hand when you play faster parts, the more relaxed your hand is the easier it will become to play faster and cleaner.
Start by breaking the solo up into sections and master one section at at time, not only will it make the solo easier to remember, but it makes practicing much more efficient. The amount of time it takes to learn the solo in sections compared to the amount of time it takes to learn in one sweep is noticeably lower.
Use a metronome, keep the BPS at the fastest speed that you can play it comfortably and without making any mistakes. If you make a mistake, lower the tempo by 3-5bps and try again. If you make it through without screwing up, do it again, and if you nail it twice in a row, try bringing the tempo up by 3-5. If you do it this way and you don't force it, it will take a little longer but you will sound better when you get it up to speed. If you need to work on your technique or the solo is beyond the scope of what you typically play, it is imperative that you start slow. If you move to fast, you may eventually learn all the notes, but your technique will be bad and you'll be sloppy.
It wouldn't hurt to practice a few of the standard scales just to get your fingers good an versatile, like: Major, Minor, Harmonic Minor, Melodic Minor, and maybe the Phrygian...
