you should improve your finger dexterity..
and you should have some good picking...

I say screw a metronome and learn to depend on yourself and the music to keep your timing. Not everything you're going to jam on will have a steady 4th note beat to it and you should be able to keep time without that.

Are you an idiot? A metronome or a drum machine are the absolute best tools for developing accuracy and hand synchronization. Especially when you're playing shred and you need an extremely high level of both. Playing with a metro does lots for you, and doesn't harm you at all. So why not?

TS, take a look at the stickies in Musician Talk and Advanced Techniques (the AT one especially). And when you practice, always remember: speed is a byproduct of accuracy.
