The modes of the major scale, intervals, knowing about relative minors and majors is important as well. Chord construction is important. Also, if you want to apply any of it to guitar, start learning the notes on the fretboard, If you cant name any note on the neck instantly, youll have trouble applying it all. That actually may be the most important part, because it seems when you can actually make use of the knowledge youve gained, it makes alot more sense.
