practice short sections very slowly with a metronome for long periods of time, then build it up speed wise. Proceed with other sections, then link the sections.
There is no "heres the secret, now you can play it" trick, so its all practice.

Wait a couple of years and then you'll be playing it in 2:03 minutes...

Like Artist said there is no secret formula or method.

If there was everybody would play like it - but they dont.

Play along to a metronome and just practise it slowly and keep practising until you get quicker.

Metallica stuff is a very good learning tool to use - thats what i use when i am stuck for material to learn. Mainly because Metallics stuff ir relatively easy to play.

Keep on practising!

What are you looking for? Tricks, tab, other? It's not a very hard solo to play in terms of how it's laid out, you just need to practice it. Metronome is key.

But remember to keep playing guitar during those couple of years otherwise you'll still find it hard.

I think my problem is that I can't play so fast when the solo is placed on two strings. I can go wild on a single string but I cant play fast solos which are one two strings such as Master of Puppes solo and many others. If you guys can help me solve that problem that'll be great...

Nobody gets it the first or second time. In fact, most people don't even get it on the 100th time. Just keep practicing, s l o w l y

Actually, to point out something from my own books... I started learning the Master Of Puppets solo a good six months ago and still haven't got it perfect. Right now it's in a stage where sometimes I do it perfect but other times I screw bits up. Wouldn't dare think about playing it in a gig situation the way it is right now... although I couldn't ever see myself doing a One cover to be fair! I've gone right off Metallica recently.
