Absolutely!

In those fast solos, simply pick and tap faster! Problem solved.

But seriously, what do you mean a technique to play faster? You have to practice?

Well first of all, use your middle finger when tapping, act as if you were palm muting to mute the unused strings, work on accuracy, if you are accurate speed will come, learn to play fluidly without having to move your hands a ton or anything like that.

Try to learn the intro of "Hot for Teacher" by Van Halen.

It will stretch your hand, you will get practice tapping on every string, and you will have to connect it smoothly.

If you can really slow it down and make it sound clean, then slowly speed it up, you will be able to pick up other songs pretty easily.
