I'll keep this simple, Tool, RHCP, Floyd, Zeppelin and loads of classical musicians are my main influences. I have learned the basics of theory and a little bit beyond, basic chord progressions, blues progressions, time signatures, tonicization, seconday dominants, the most standard scales I have encountered, modes, modulation, chord leading, borrowed chords, cadences... well that's all I can think of off the top of my head that's at my general skill level. I'm wondering where I should go next to continue learning, you don't have to describe a concept just name it, there are so many different topics out there to cover I know I haven't even heard of them all. Thanks.

Continue to learn new things [perhaps arpeggios?] and more songs. Then use the stuff you know into your songwriting.
Today is yesterday's tomorrow.

Shredding is not my thing, no disrespect to shredding, but I'm more of a comfortably numb kind of guy. My technique is pretty much 100%, I can play everything I need to, now it's just a mind thing.

What do you mean your technique is 100%? If it is, learn a ridiculous song like Mabel's Fatal Fable by Jason Becker this might change your mind if you like classical music
