We don't even know what you're currently capable of. How could we tell you what else to learn?
study music theory and practice with a metronome until your fingers are sore
We dont know what you're capable of doing or what styles of music you want to learn/practice, so we cant give much advice, other than study theory and practicing with a metronome, as said above.
My best aadvice is begin to work your way through guitar grades. They offer no end of ispiration and show how you are progressing.
