Practice. Slow, long, hard... *eyes glaze over*

I forgot to say practice.

1 thing I have found really helpful and i dont know where it was said first but

Quality before speed. Play it as slow as you need to play it so that everything sounds perfect, then work on speed.
#5
Speed is a byproduct of accuracy.

ergo, if you mess up playing it fast, you haven't developed your accuracy enough at slow speeds. There is no different technique for playing fast than playing slow. It's all the same motions.
#6
use roundabout unorthodox methods that don't include practicing or a metronome. that's just a big hoax meant to waste years of your life and keep you from getting good
#8
you develop it by starting slow. if you can play it slowly w/o making mistakes you can start speeding it up until you're shredding w/e it is you're playing.
#9
a light touch, lots of practice, use the very tip of the pick no more than that, and more practice
#11
Make sure that during this slow practice your primary concern is economy of motion rather than chasing the metronome.

And relaxation. Making the worlds smallest movements won't make a damn spot of difference unless you're relaxed to go with it.

Well I thought I had implied that . Now, as the almighty president of the galaxy has said, focus on relaxation.

I find it's better to not leave anything to implication, people in general are fucking stupid
