So I was wondering if anyone could tell me some easy ways to increase your fret hands speed, strength, and accuracy. I have tried some things but they just don't seem to be getting to the results I want. THANKS!

buy a metronome and get some licks you like, and slowly build speed. its frustrating but you have to stick to it.

finger weights are not a god idea, they will build strength in your fingers but in a manner that will throw off your technique, it`s the same as using a weighted hockey puck or soccer ball, they make you stronger, but compromise the motion so that when you use a regular weighted puck or ball, or in this case take the weights off your fingers, your motions will feel awkward.

just practice with a metronome and use the exercises posted by therealtater.

Using finger weights will cause you to get into the habit of using more energy than you need to, to play notes which will actually slow you down.

Like the others said, definitely get a metronome, that helps a lot. But also practice your scales a lot, slowly and working up faster with the metronome.
Also, if you're ever in the market for a book I'd have to recommend The Guitar Grimoire, they're excellent books.
But yeah, all in all you just need to practice your scales. Accuracy is key.

sorry but there is no easy way out... basically you need practice (preferably with a metronome) for hours and hours. I wouldn't bother with finger weights or anything like that, nothing will improve your guitar playing more than actually playing your guitar.
