I want to.

Mostly because I can't find a drummer, and I wanna make 100 % my own songs, where i play guitar, bass guitar, and drums. That'll let me do things I want.

What's a good starting kit?

If you can play music with enthusiasm and an honest effort, then no matter how flawed, noisy and unclean the music is, you are a musician. If you play just to be the best, you are not a musician, nor are you worthy of any musician's recognition. - me

If you have an Xbox 360, apparently the game Rock Band is a good way for beginners to get into drumming

anything above $300 in a full kit, stay away from first act.....or rock band....or any table top units in the e-drums.

if you cant make noise, roland makes the best v-drums which are nice and quiet electronic drums. I suggest going for the Roland TD3 set or the TD6 set...

of couse there are tabs (cant advertise the site here, try google), but it aint like notes, intervals or that kinda stuff, i think good drumming are complex series of beats and rythms

first, if you start drumming, it has to be because you want to start drumming, not because you cant find a drummer.

i'd like to be a bassist, but all anyone from any band wants is a drummer.... it gets lame after a while

drums are odd instruments because the 'quality' of your timbre is really based on preference... personally, i like a really long, resonating, low snare sound (think cheesy 80s power ballad) and duck-taped toms, but a lot of other drummers like to have a really crisp sound and more 'jungley' sound to the rest of their kit. it all depends on what you like.

good luck, though.

There are but they're kinda pointless IMHO. Playing drums by ear is a lot easier than guitar, most rock beats are similar (snare on 2 and 4, etc.), and nobody's going to notice if you do a fill a little differently anyway.
