Correcting somebody is one thing; being a dick is something else.

Drums tabs basically tell you when to hit each drum/cymbal. For example, here's your typical rock drum beat:

HH|x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-|
Sn|----x-------x---|
Bd|x-------x-------|


The "HH" means hi-hat, the "Sn" means snare, and the "Bd" means bass drum; some tabs will use different abbreviations. The x's on the hi-hat line tell you to hit the hi hat eight times. The x's on the bass drum line to tell you to hit the bass drum with the first and fifth hi hat strokes. The x's on the snare tell you to hit the snare with the third and seventh hi hat strokes.

It's easier to just listen to the song you want to play

This. But the post above that works if you can't get it from the song. Tux Guitar/Guitar Pro also works nicely.

This, I always hated reading drum tabs. Guitar Pro is excellent.
