You progress quicker by playing slowly.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast.

You have now learnt guitar 101, rush into the world and become!

I suggest music books, seeing bands live, watching your favorite bands/musician on youtube and watch how he's doing things - then work out why.

Alongside playing with metronomes.

Also, playing with other people really rises you up as a guitarist

I second Anthony1991 on the playing slow, using a metronome, and playing with other people. Also when you learn songs learn them all the way through. Most people just learn parts. Learning the full songs will make you a much better, more consistent, guitarist. If you come up against a technique roadblock - a part that requires you to use a technique that is very difficult to learn without focusing specifically on it (sweep picking, tapping, etc...) - then turn to exercises. In everything you do focus on playing cleanly and efficiently, in correct form, and you will be surprised when you can suddenly play things you could never even attempt before.

^^^all of that. also,
Practice your ass off on improv, rythm, lead. '
Learn something new every day. (If you practice the same thing all the time you aren't progressing.)

Theory if you want to understand the inner workings of it all.
A lot of people say you don't need it, but even just the basic knowing the difference in major and minor chords and triads will take you a LONG LONG LONG way.

Forgot this. Definitely learn theory. A lot of people here will tell you that theory isn't important, or worth learning. For one thing, learning something new is always worthwhile. More often than not though, people that say it doesn't matter just don't want to be bothered with taking the time to learn it.
