i'm not really sure what I am... Would you consider me a beginner, intermediate, or somethinh else?

I can play

Songs:
-Walk this way (intro)
-Same old song and dance (intro)
-Iron man (everything but solo)
-Smoke on the water (intro/main riff)
-Crazy Train (intro and part after that)
-Paint it Black
-Fly Away (main riff) (by Lenny Kravitz)
-(Maybe more that I forgot to put)

Techniques:
-Power chords
-Learning barre chords
-Practicing hammerons and pulloffs

Also, can you give me any suggestions of what I should do next? I'd appreciate it

Definitely beginner, and I mean no offense by that.

More intermediate techniques would be learning scales as well as practicing vibrato, tremelo picking, alternate picking, etc.

Probably still beginner. What I would do next is just keep learning songs you want to know. Try to learn the full song insted of just the intro. And when you think you are ready, learn the minor pentatonic scale. It is the most used scale in all of rock lead guitar playing. So that will get you started with some lead playing.

The funny thing is that while being called a beginner will upset somebody, it just shows me that I have more work to do which in my case is a good thing because practicing is actually enjoyable to me. Which by reading many other peoples posts elsewhere, they usually consider it a burden.

Any full song suggestions I should play?
And what should I try first?

-full songs
-vibrato
-tremelo picking
-alternate picking

That's the perfect attitude to have, always try to think that way and you'll be miles ahead of other players.

What I would do is to try to learn songs you already know pretty well just from listening. It will help you a lot in learning how to actually play it since you'll have a good idea of how it's supposed to sound.

And as for which techniques to learn first, alternate picking is usually always quite useful. But as far as other techniques go, I would suggest learning some scales, too. Just find a guitarist whose style you really like, and learn songs where they're doing something you think sounds really cool.

But just running picking drills and practicing scales on a regular basis, the more boring stuff, will help your playing a lot more than just messing around and jamming to yourself.

I'm aware of that, but they're more advanced than what he's already doing.
