Make sure you divide the solo into different sections and have a clear picture of every section. Then put them together. Don't see the whole solo as ONE thing, but rather many different sections.

Break it up into smaller pieces, like Daniel said. 0:00 - 0:11 would be the first, 0:11 - 0:16 the second, 0:16 - 0:19 the third and 0:27 - 0:35 the fourth.

Spend about 5 min on each one, but start at a very slow speed that you can play perfectly (use a metronome here), then after 5 min increase the speed by 5 - 10 bpm, and repeat. In a few days, your fingers will be much more used to playing the notes at higher speeds.

You're close to getting it, just don't rush it, or it won't sound the best it can! I must admit that I sometimes rush, but have to go back and slowly practice the faster parts that are a little too fast for me. Keep it up man!! Nearly there.

no problem! the awareness of phrases was a big step for my playing. Everything in music is done in phrases, so they are of huge importance. They have a starting and an ending point, make sure the start and the end go at the right drum beat

Yes, Daniel has a point with phrases. When practicing something new/demanding, it is always good to split it into simpler sections and work on each bit slowly at first, and increase speed gradually. Eventually it will start to sound like original.
