play it and move it around the neck, play it in all positions and try to interchange the positions. Your speed is determind by 30%finger speed/strength 70%fretboard knowledge (my own useless made up statistic)

maybe also not just play it up and done but use some varations, for examople


-----------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------5-
------------------------5---------5--7----5--7----
--------5--7-----5--7-----5--7--------7----------
-5--8---------8----------------------------------- and so on (and down as well)

u could also play it, picking each note more than once

and also try improvising a bit with it

edit: sry, just saw it was an olt thread...but maybe its still useful for someone

Play better, learn all the positions absolutely dead, google "paul gilbert pentatonics" and learn some eric johnson solos. And if you're very brave, shawn lane has a few pentatonic examples about.
