Yeah make sure you're in tune. As you play more you'll hear it better. Also try to find some lessons on alternate picking. It's pretty much the foundation of playing faster music. There are a ton of great lessons on ultimate-guitar or you could google "alternate picking" and find a bunch of lessons spewed about the internet.

But yeah that was good for four months. Just stick with it.
