How hard is it to learn how to play the drums? how long would it take to be really good?

It depends on how badly you want it, how much time you are able to practice, and how strong your gross motor skills are. You also have to learn from a reliable source, likely a teacher or experienced drummer who is willing to let you hang out and watch him/her. If you have the desire and the discipline, and study and practice well, you could join a band in a matter of weeks or months. If coordination isn't a strong suite of yours, it could take longer, but you can still acquire those skills. To get to the point where you are Neil Peart or Buddy Rich....that's a lifelong journey, just like virtuosity on any instrument.

It would take about 6 months at the most. It also depends if you have played another instrument. That might help you.

I played them when I was a kid, but it took pretty long because I didn't play any other instruments and I was only 10. It depends, sometimes it takes 6 months and sometimes it takes 6 years.

Why do people ask these kinds of questions? You shouldn't do something because its easy. The answer to your question is simply this... It all depends on YOU and your capabilities now. We don't know you or your capabilities.

First off bud i never asked if it was easy. I asked if it was difficult for the average person to master an art form that i was curious about in the easiest way possible. Isn't that what this website is for? For curious people to ask questions and seek help from others? I dont know if its your place to criticize one's curiosities. but i do know you probably should keep unhelpful comments to yourself.
