I have 4 months off of university this year and I plan on spending this time getting better at guitar and perfecting techniques.
I've been playing guitar for 4 years now, but it has been on and off and never very consistent.
So I need some techniques/exercises to help me perfect my playing.
Thanks in advance!

spiders, ladders, trills, chromatic excercises, alternate string skipping, if you like it: sweeping.
the list could go on, but 4 months is not that much :P
#3
Scale runs. You know, running from mode to mode up and down the neck. Make sure to include hammer ons, pulls, bends, string slipping etc
#4
string skipping could suck up a big chunk of time to master so there u go.
in other thoughts,

spider chords

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.

What kind of music do you want to play/make?

I would probably focus on simple things that when they are really mastered make everything sound tight.
Muting unwanted strings being the main one, clean hammer ons and pull offs - being able to play them evenly or as a slur. Then brush up on chords and stuff.
Always waiting for that bit of inspiration.

Can't get enough atonal string skipping backwards fully tapped 250 bpm arpeggio.
It's spelled wiener.
