I'm learning the Stairway to Heaven solo...

I pretty much got the whole thing down in my head, I just have trouble keeping the rhythm, having a good tempo, and getting the first few pull-off chains right.

Any suggestions?

No, I saw them on that documentary, Jurassic Park. They walked around and ate electric fences and people.

Practice it with the song to get the temp right, or play with a metronome or count to yourself, the notes themselves can only be learned through practice but improvising a bit in the pentatonic might help.
