I was playing superstitious (Europe) solo by ear, but this song have a fast run... So I slowed down the song like 75% (with transcribe) and it was "fast".
Now I'm taking 30 min break and then I will continue transcribing that solo, but how the hell can I play that? Legato? Picking every note?

Picking! It wouldn't sound right if you weren't playing it with alternate picking. Just keep at it, man.

Slow it down until you can play it, get it absoluetly right and then speed it up slowly.
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.

Practice it slowly, so you can play it perfectly and repeat it hundreds of times! There's no magic to it at all! And don't speed up until you can play it perfectly with the smallest most efficient movements

This + metronome.
Metronome is your friend.
Don't practice until you get it perfect. Practice until you can't get it wrong.

Patience is essential, my friend. *insert guitarist name here* didn't just pick up a guitar one day and start wailing. They put in hours and hours of practice. Just like anything, dude. Nothing good comes easy.

EDIT: And if you ever find yourself getting frustrated, flip your guitar upside down and try to play it opposite handed. Remember, this is where you started from.

Zeppelin Addict is right.

To understand better the proccess of learning read the first 2 chapters in my FREE ebook:

http://www.guitarlearningtips.org/the-guitar-blueprint-to-success/


I talk there about the process of mental and muscular matery and how to do it properly.


As for your Europe songs, i have been trying different approachs related to speed building and the conclusion is:

- the slower you can play it, the faster you play it. Seems counter intuitive, but related to muscle memory (see chapter 2 in my ebook) at slow tempos you get you fingers used to a corect and repetitive motion. Speed is just repeating the same patterns at different speeds.


You can try doing the whole solo at 70 or 80 bpm for 15 minutes, and then try doing the song again at 140 or 150 bpm.

The ideea is to start slow and then try a bigger speed.

And the most important thing : when playing both slow and fast do concentrate on playing all the notes perfectly.

Don't be kind with yourself when it comes to ho you play things. Th better you conentrate everything the better "Flawless playing" will become second nature to you.

Every experienced guitr player can tell you that.

Again here is the table of contents for the book:
