Its called practice. Try it sometime...It helps.

well frist off like the first answer was its going to take some practice. but what i do to learn how fast scales is to first start off slow with a metronome and keep increasing the bpm (beats per min.) untill desired speed. you have to remember to start of slow

I second the first answer (tactfully, though..I do hope that's really not the real Kirk Hammett...I heard he was a really nice guy, hate to find out otherwise). But Dan, who answered the second question, is giving you the totally correct way to do it. It's not going to happen overnight...you've got to learn the scales, get used to the progression....another thing to try, to get you used to where your fingers are supposed to be, is move up the neck (i.e...start off in the key of say "A"...play the scale up and down..the move to Bb..up and down...the B...etc..etc.. This doesn't necessarily build your speed, but it does make the finger placement, and changing keys, a little more natural feeling.
