Anything that involves a lot of picking with a metronome.

Metalheads are the worst thing that ever happened to metal.

Yo Hardcore dude! My advice is to play through various scales and arpeggios using a metronome. Have goals for yourself and a structured system where you are periodically pushing yourself into % increases in your bpm (beat per minute) with the metronome. Also make sure that your picking-hand discipline is up to par where it should be (IE: not digging strings, economy picking, etc.).

Good luck on increasing your picking speed!!

Alternate pick, all the time. Even **** that you normally wouldn't alternate pick because it's slow or easy to play, do it anyway.

And then learn "technical difficulties" by racer x. Start slow, work it up.
The gods you worship are Steel
At the altar of Rock N Roll you kneel
A slave who forever Rocks
Is chained in the Devil's locks
AND SLAIN BY THE BLOODY AXE I WHAIL!

Is it just me, or does the solo in that song sound exactly the same as Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb?

Well i wouldnt say the solo sounds exactly the same, because clearly Paul GIlbert and David Gilmour play nothing alike.... But yes the BACKING sounds borrowed from Comfortably numb.
Frank Zappa's not dead. He just smells funny.

Are you saying you shouldn't economy pick?
