Learn the half and whole diminished scales as well as Phrygian, Aeolian, and Harm. Minor.

As for techniques, learning pinch harmonics, tremolo picking, tapping, string skipping, and sweeping picking should help get you there.

Don't rush through it all though. It will take years before you can start melting faces, so take things slow. When first started playing, I wanted to learn everything as quick as possible and recently I've had to go back and relearn everything.
