Get IdentityServer3 to use existing user sql database

I am trying to authenticate a user against an existing user database.
I have an existing database with a users table and I want the Identity Server to look at this database and get authenticate the user.

I have found examples for MembershipReboot and AspNetIdenetity, but I am confused on how I need to create my own user database mapping.

I am not trying to create an external provider e.g Facebook

Has anyone got any ideas or seen any tutorials on how this can be done?

Yes Yes

You can implement your own IUserService, then in your startup you can set IdentityServer to use your new User Service

var factory = InMemoryFactory.Create(
    clients: Clients.Get(), 
    scopes: Scopes.Get());

var userService = new MyUserService();
factory.UserService = new Registration<IUserService>(resolver => userService);
