You mean like 12 Bar patterns? Or Walking Patterns? 7th Chords?
Anyways, this site has a bunch of good stuff that you can learn off of. http://12bar.de/rhythm.php

A walking pattern is basically what Pride and Joy is. Or the bass on most blues that has a 12/8 time signature.
Personally, i dig the single chord, repetitive riff type stuff like Catfish Blues, Smokestack Lightning, and a bunch of John Lee Hooker tunes.

when talking about walking patterns,
look at videos on youtube
"uptown shuffle" or "downtown shuffle"
"texas shuffle"<pride and joy, or if you are good, "Rude Mood"
listen to "Cry before I go" by John Lee Hooker, it has a great descending shuffle Rhythm
A song with a nice (not hard) but good sounding rhythm is "Strange Brew" by Cream, its just a nice way to add a little complexity to your music.
I don't know if that really helps, because I don't know anything regarding theory other than the absolute basics, but I hope it does.
