I've been playing for little over a year, I'm pretty decent I think.

Lately I've just been jamming with backing track and I feel that my improvisation skill has increased a lot. I can alternate pick (okay, but not more, working on it) and tap.

I know a few scales, like minor pentatonic, blues scale and 3 different shapes of G major. I just don't know what to learn next? Learning full songs is so boring.

Cheers and merry christmas!

everything, its endless trust me playing 6 years and i still find theory stuff that i could be a million times better at. get a book like petrucci's rock disipline and go through it. scales wise learn all your locrian, dorian etc and every chord in every poistion. best thing any guitarist can do is learn every not on the fret board sounds simple but remembering them all at speed isnt.
have fun

Definitely learn the rest of the major scale positions first. You'll have them down in 20 minutes.

Learn the major, minor and pentatonic scales at all 5 positions for each. Make sure you learn them paying attention to were the root note is or they're basically useless.

Practice using all 5 positions of each scale seamlessly.

Learn the fretboard inside out. What notes are where etc.

Learn the CAGED system (EDCAG) or similar. Whatever works for you.

Should be enough for a while

Where do I find what 5 positions are the basic?
