play a song slowly...try it a bit faster..then a little faster...keep making it faster. eventually you will play much...you guessed it...faster!

(use a metronome)
as much as it sucks...have a metronome going. Even if you don't really want to pay attention to it, have it sit in the far corner of the room with almost inaudible clicks . It really helps a lot if you're like me and rhythm sucked for awhile
remeber to push yourself!!! and yes to the metronome and scale sequences
To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true.

biggest prob you might come across is you trying to beat the metronome, lol. Silly as it sounds i bet you will
Everyone says metronome, metronome, metronome, and while I can't deny the effectiveness of them, I rarely, if ever, used mine. It's a gradual thing, it comes with hours and hours and hours of practice. Tighten your picking as much as possible, and breathe normally.
