On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

There's nothing you "need" to learn but if I were to pick one scale you absolutely have to learn it's the standard major scale, once you understand that well you'll be able to understand anything else in the field of theory with relative ease.

As for technique all the exercises you could ever need are in the stickies at the top of the forum.
