I would try repetitive pull offs and hammer ons, 20-25 minutes a day, switching from a basic 5h7 or 7p5 one string or 5h8 string up h5. Might be difficult in this context, but look at Shinedown's "Heroes" and some Eric Clapton stuff which has the 2 string 5h8 to h5 on th next string up.

Is there a special trick to pull offs?

Do you just lift off or jerk the string?

Mine are very weak when i attempt fast solos.

Trust me, I'm no lead guitar God, but if you want to improve your lead, you should get this book called "Speed Mechanics For Lead Guitar" by Troy Stetina. It covers a lot of stuff: hammering on, pulling off, "rolling your fingers" from string to string (It's hard to explain), sweep picking, having good rhythm, and being creative. Those are just some examples.

yah mine too

i can do pull-offs on the g string with no distortion no problem, but when i move to the d-string...........

although this is with the 4th finger, with the other 3 i can do it in any string

Practice guys, practice. Practice until your hammers and pulls are as strong sounding as you picking the string.

I do but its so damn boring! I'm pretty fast but I am actually really stuck on song writing and its pissing me off! I wanna write like Adam Jones but I just can't. I got the skills, but I don't have the knowledge and I don't know the rules, can anyone help me? I'm so angry.
