Relax!!!! really, espescially in your picking hand. The key to playing fast is to be relaxed. Don't tense up your hands, you end up hurting yourself.

Also, some most people agree that the picking motion comes more from your wrist than your elbow (the elbow comes into play for moving across strings).

forgot to mention that it hurts pretty much all the way around the elbow and into, mainly, the two middle fingers. Have to search to feel any pain in upper arm
