4. Rhythm (60 m)
- Strumming Patterns (ex blues shuffle, hendrix like tricks) 20

in your scales are you only workign on the pentatonic and g major?
try playing in different keys you dont usually do like E or Bflat

also add some harmonic theory(chords and shit) it will really help your playing and improvising out

other than that you seem like you know what your doing and just remember to take a few breaks on it you dont want to burn yourself out
