I can play a pentatonic scale a couple others, but what theory exactly would I need to really what to play anywhere on the fret board or anything else for the matter to get me knowing more about leads?
uh, well your question seems pretty general and i'm not an expert. do you know the different modes/shapes of the pentatonic scale? if so, you can just shift up to wherever you want to go... it's pretty much the same with all scales. you learn to basic pattern, the 7 notes or so, then just get comfortable with those same 7 notes in different patterns and runs in different places up the neck. i'm not quite sure what you're really looking for.

My mind is going. I can feel it.
learning scale shapes wont take you much further if you dont know the notes on the fretboard so learn that
