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.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

walking patterns??

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.
