This might be entirely useless, but just as a tip I might mention something I myself like to do.
In the intro, you stick to the usual progressions that you like, but when the song gets started you start using whats generally regarded as unharmonius; mixing 1-2-5 or something. Of course, if you are playing alone it mostly sound like something you never want to hear again, but together with others you can sometime produce really interesting pieces. Learning to play an instrument is mostly about learning the rules. Learning to be a muscian is mostly about breaking the rules.
