As someone who has never been a "technique" player (stupid fingers!) I would like to add that to really get a lick together, never play it faster that you can play it correctly when you practice. Every time you play it wrong, you are, essentially, practicing that mistake. you'll learn it faster and better if you do everything you can do to always play it correctly from the get-go. Go slow, do small pieces then string them together, get it solid so you can "feel" the passage in your fingers away from the horn.
