Yeah, don't even bother trying unless you've a needlepoint tip on your iron. Also, use the thinnest solder you can find, and apart from that there aren't any special techniques or anything - it's pretty simple.

To handle such delicate things, you need the right tool. It may be expensive but it's better.
Check it. Solder Iron With Blower
