Well, there's a couple of stickies at the top of the forum you might want a look at. Also my youtube channel covers all of those topics.

There are no genereal guidelines to follow for lead guitar. If you watch all the great virtuosos in the world you will notice that they all play quite differently and can achieve massive speed. (if thats what your after)

You really have to find out what works best for you.

What works for me is this.

LH - Index finger flat to mute strings not being played. The rest of the fingers slightly angled for precision.
RH - Wrist parallell with forearm.
Pick Angle - About 15 degrees down towards the neck.

Not sure if you can understand the pick angle thing, but i cant think of any other way to explain it. Hope this helps.

Alternate picking, sweep picking and lastly arpeggio picking will really help you out here. Look for some examples of these you can practice on. You'll definately need alternate picking and sweep picking.
