    Ok, this really might help.

    Left hand:
    Put your index finger over the D and G string @ the 9th fret and leave it there.
    Just move the middle finger around to play the notes @ the 10th fret.

    Right hand:
    Use "raking".
    For example, when the lick starts on the G string, and you start on the index finger, pluck the D string with the same motion instead of using stright alternate picking for each note.

    All this is aimed at minimizing finger movement.
    Less excess movement -> more speed or being more relaxed at a given tempo.

    Everybody has been a begginer at one point. Encouragement goes a long way when your just starting out.
