I've never used tabs to figure out a song on drums, it's really slow and not accurate. Just listen to the song, listen closely to the drums and figure out what drum/cymbal/etc. he's hitting when, figure out the beat as a whole and then just try it out. If you're just starting out and you can't play the exact beat, that's cool, just dumb it down a little and play it over and over, eventually you'll be able to play it the right way. You're not reallly gonna find anything on the internet explaining how to play just one certain song on drums.

If you really really want to learn it using the tab for whatever reason, you read drum tabs like the big B at the bottom is the bass drum, the S above is the snare, t's are usually toms, F means your floor tom, hh usually means hi hat and then C's or whatever are various cymbals. On the lines when you see the X's, it means you hit that drum. So if you see an X(it might not be an x, it could be any key really, sometimes different keys mean you hit the drum a different way, but dont worry about that at first)on the B line and the HH line, you hit the bass drum and the hi hat together, you see an X on the S line you hit the snare, and so on. It's hard to explain through the computer but hopefully I gave you an idea.

Surely you only just asked the other day what drum kit to get and now youve been playing for a few weeks :S, anyway surely you could just listen to the song and learn by ear.

Long story. I had a drum kit, but is was really shit, so i sold it ( I mean reaallly shit ) and i still went lessons, but didnt have a kit to practise. So im new to all kits and i wasnt sure what was good, someone told me roland was good on here, and checked it out and bought a kit. It cost 700 but its really cool.

Insane? All of those except a few Slayer songs are incredibly simple.

Maybe he means insane from a beginner/nub perspective (after all, the threa starter isn't exactly experienced).

@Starter: I'm going to tell you this now; drums are far too easy to hear (short of extreme shit production) and replicate note-by-note for tabs/videos to be necessary or worth being dependent on. Just listen to the individual drums (learn the bass drum rhythm, then add the snare to it, then the high hat, so on) and put it together. You'll be useless as a drummer in a band if you need to have the songwriter tab out every note of drumming on paper, and even more useless if you expect an instructional video - and even if you don't plan on playing in some kind of musical project, lack of basic ear skills will cripple your versatility as a musician.
