As the description says, at certain high speeds, my picking starts to slip and the sound becomes a bit muddier. I know that the way to fix this is to practice slowly and build up, but I don't know exactly what to practice.

Another thing I would like to ask, how would you mute strings at high speeds, or at all? Kris mentions it in one of his One-on-One video lessons, but I know nothing about it. Maybe this can clear up the sound when I'm playing.

Ayen,good muting always comes with lot of practicing.
Of course,you don't have to pay that much attention to muting when you're playing slow stuff.
But on high speed it's much more important.
So after you find yourself comfortable at low speed,go on some more speed and practice it as much as you can.
Your right hand palm will mute lower strings again,and left hand index finger will do most of the job on higher strings.

All I can say is. Just slightly mute the strings while playing excerises. Play slowly build up like you said. And some of it might be from when you switch strings. Just practice slowly and concentrate on your muting.
