what i did, i've started playing poorly on purpose. Basically just trying to create noise with it. It's a much greater way of expression rather than just playing within the notes perfectly.

I did the same.
I started playing stuff I like rather than what I should've learned. (Essentials and what-not!)
So now I'm basically starting allll over!
Just Read up. Learn as much as you can on fundamentals and
what I'm doing is working in a time line and working up to modern music I like.
Starting with Ragtime to blues to jazz and so forth.

I'm sort of doing fundamentals with my lessons (barre chords, scales), but maybe I should try playing blues? I mostly play rock and metal now.

The best way to expand is to start from the beginning!
Dude learn Jazz It contains a variation to blues and fits well with most Metal solos.
Learn Phrygian Scales, they are so beautiful when put into solos.

Most are Variations, to the pentatonic scale.
It's all about theory though.

One of the most known Jazz players that are real good is Joe Pass.
He is a REAL guitar Hero.

k, I'm in a theory class, so that should help. And I'll look up Joe Pass and try learning some stuff of his, thanks.
