Here're the "hard parts" of "Stand" from Planetshaker's "Savior of the World" album.

Took me some time to master this part! Still not that smooth.

Instrumental:



This is where the electric guitar comes in, hence it's technically no longer a "solo" (instrumental instead).

For the solo bit where you're playing the E note (2nd fret, D string) ostinato you could use your middle finger for fretting the Bb (3rd fret, G string) and ring finger for the B (4th fret, G string) instead of your ring finger for both notes. Less movement might help you play the line smoother.
