The second method is the Bursts Method. Here we stay on the same tempo all the time, but do little bursts of speed every now and then.

First of all, pick a tempo where you can barely play your lick. This should be where you can manage to play it maybe once or twice in time, but then start missing notes or fall out of time.

You set the metronome at this tempo, and start out playing at half the speed. Whenever you feel like, you do bursts at full speed. At first a burst may only be playing the lick once, but after a while, you'll be able to keep the lick going for longer and longer.
