Ive been trying to teach myself theory for a couple months now and so far thanks to the lessons on this site i understand (i use the term very loosely) understand steps and know the major/minor scale, pentatonic major/minor and kind of understand root notes. I jam with some friends 3-4 times a week and since ive learned what i know now my playing has improved greatly especilally my improvising with the pentatonic (too much fun i can go forever). I feel like ive hit and wall and am looking for some guidance into what i should really try to learn and get a hold of to go to the next level of theory. Please point me in the right direction. Thank you.

theory is more than just scales. learn each interval of the scale and train your ear to recognize them. learn how chords are made and which intervals to use over each chord. learn how melodies and harmonies are made, and practise adding them to your improvising
