start practicing scales and chromatic runs. it will be very difficult early on, but these will help build strength and dexterity in your individual fingers. do these things with B) all downpicking, B) alternate picking.

Also, you are going to have to tough it out and play the stupid stuff for a little bit like "mary had a little lamb" and shitty songs like Oasis' "Wonderwall." You gotta walk before you can run, and guitar playing requires lots of patience.
