oh yeah! i need to share my happiness with you guys! the occasion? i've been playing guitar for a year. craziest thing i've ever done. crazy because i wanted it really badly, i didn't know anything about music and it was my greatest, craziest dream to be in a guitarist in a band. yes! let's celebrate one year of craziness! i've learned basic chords, power chords, some songs and a few scales... now what should i do next?

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. Kind of like that picture of that cat holding the mini guitar on the couch with the mini amp and the cat's making this hilarious rock star face... hold on, let me see if I can find it...
Right here:

Ahem, that was off-topic, but that's what first popped into my head.
And to the threadstarter... er... congrats?
I think for your next wonderful year of playing, you should focus on some more advanced guitar techniques. Some soloing stuff would probably do you some good. Try sweep picking, tapping, pinch harmonics, to name a few. I think there are lessons on this very site for all 3 of those.
And learning more theory is always great. Look into some chord progressions, building chord shapes, and even some harmonizing (I'm not sure, but I think there are 3 really awesome harmonizing columns on this site written by some really awesome author... )
Anyway, that's what I'd suggest doing next.
Other than that, good luck, and cheers to another year of rocking out!

playing guitar for 1 year, i thought someone would say i try the bass or something for another year. but i guess there are a lot more to learn on the guitar.
