I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

you used the right form of "their!" i commend you sir!

legato: notes that are played smoothly

In guitar terms this means you use hammer ons and pull offs instead of picking each note

as for picking speed: the only trick really is to practice your basic alternate picking day after day at slower speeds (don't get carried off going as fast as you can). To get your picking movement down to being neat effecient and preciese. In a year or so you'll be able go pretty fast
(from dictionary.com haha) In a smooth, even style without any noticeable break between the notes.

for speed just practice.
And before you get speed, you'll want to practice your accuracy first.
