just work on your accuracy "with great acurracy comes great speed", everyone one can jingle their fingers around quick.

That's what they're meant to be. If you don't repeat those exercises hundreds of times, they are useless. There aren't any secret exercises that the great shredders use/used to become good. They sat there and played the same exercises over and over.

^Yeah - those excercises are there a reason, if you use them properly - they work. So, use them to improve your accuracy.

Take one excercise and slow it down to a speed where you can play every note perfectly accurate - don't stick the metronome up a notch, keep it at a speed where you know you can be accurate.

If the speed is slow enough it allows you to think of what your fingers are doing before they do it - which is what accuracy is. When you're playing fast, you don't get time to *think* about what your fingers are doing, you just do it - slow down the speed enough and you can be as accurate as you like.
