What is the best way to build speed? I know that with time I will get faster, but are there any exercises or anything to help get me there? When I am playing a song I can play all the eighth notes and I can play the sixteenth notes when there is just a few of them. But it's when I get to those long 1 or 2 measure phrases of straight sixteenths that I can't do it no matter how much I practice it. I'm just not that fast.
In Guitar World they have those "Betcha Can't Play This" sections that look pretty damn fast, you could try those. Also, try different finger exercises to build finger strength.
