So im like ****in lightning on one string but ofc thats not gonna bring me far :P i can playlike the basic minor scale quite fast too but thats just fing boring i can move along the fret board but this is where the trouble starts:

1 i keep getting the urge to move back a few notes i alreeady played and then move on further down

2 I see guys on youtube with like 4 fingers alligned How can you do thta without hitting the same note twice?

If you want to learn to shred, you might want to try learning ALL your modes... ionian (major) dorian phrygian lydian mixolydian aeolian (or minor) and locrian. That is one reason why you can play the minor scale, and tend on repeatign it, because you're unsure where to go from there. If you know your modes, you can play aeolian and link it to other modes, expanding your fret knowledge.

As for aligning four fingers, it is more of a "good technique" per say, some people can do it, some cant. For example, I leave my pinky out (which is bad form) and throw it in when I need to use it. If you want to try playing with all your fingers together, put an elastic on your fretting fingers and see how hard it is.

Not necessarily. Anyone could buy a theory book and memorize it, doesn't mean they can play.
