What's the best way to learn to solo? I'd like to be able to play really fast and stuff, but i'm not sure where to start

ummm definetly start off learning your basic pentatonic in just the first box and get comfortable with thatdo that for quite a while then learn the pentatonc all around the neck knowing roots then you can throw in other notes to make the natural minor scale.

that should take you a while and you have to start slow before playing fast

Go slow. I know its hard as hell, infuriating, even, but it will help you be more precise. Learn scales, as people said, and use alternate picking. use a metronome and make sure to hit all the notes and stay on time.
Also, learning techniques like 2 handed tapping and sweep picking will help your solos have more variety and "flavor" for lack of a better word =]

Not really helpful at all.

TS, first thing you need to do is study a few simple solos, listen to them until you can hum them back from memory. Then familiarise yourself withthe major scale and pentationics to enable you to recognise patterns within solos, that'll help you actually learn them. Then start learning some simple solos, Highway to Hell is a good place to start. You're not going to be able to play fast solos until you can play slow ones, therefore there's no point worrying about speed. What IS important is your timing, basic technique and your ability to follow chord changes.

Actually practicing scales themselves is of limited use, all that does is teach you how to play scale patterns. However is is helpful to know and understand the major, minor and their pentatonic scales...that doesn't equate to mindlessly playing up and down them though and neither is that ability necessary to learn them
