      Spotify works quite well also. There is a "free" version available, although you will receive ads. The best thing to do here is to click/open the next song you want to play before the current one finishes, then no commercials. Otherwise, there is the "unlimited" version available for around $5.00 a month with no ads. They have most every artist available. The big thing here is you must have an internet connection and be on-line to listen. Works perfect with my TD-11.

          You may also want to look at Roland's Drum Tudor. It has some advanced patterns, as well as the beginner stuff that that your talent is most likely beyond.

            There are a couple of threads that post the links to websites that feature FREE drum less mp3s or do a Google search for drum less tracks and you will find TONS out there.

                Drummit has a number of resources: http://www.reddit.com/r/drums/wiki/drumless

                I started organizing, tagging and deduplicating all the drumless tracks I found, but it's a long project. One nice thing about Spotify (I use Clementine to connect to it) is that you can build a playlist with both the drumless track (on your computer) and the original (streaming), so you can play with the original artist first and then go to it by yourself.
