When you are first starting i highly suggest (1) Getting a drum teacher, (2) dont learn any songs at first, when learning drums songs are the last thing you need to concentrate on, (3) start out slow and pratice one beat over and over (with a metronome) to get your timing down (timing is the most important thing when playing drums) (4) once you have a couple of beats down start adding simple fills and go from there.

Dont be worrying about learning songs unless your in a band, once you get good enough you can start adding you own beats and fills in songs and to me thats what makes a real drummer.

I hope some of that made sense.
