The art of guitar solos and guitar scales is all about practice, practice and practice. You cant get speed just by spending some time on your guitar, you really have to practice different scales on daily basis in order to obtain good speed guitar playing.

Thus, the key is play all the notes slowly, and then gradually increase your speed. The use of a metronome is essential if you want to play guitar solos and guitar scales in different speeds/tempos.
