You're going to have to relearn alot, playing in time is meant to be a big foundation of guitar playing.

But yeah, Metronome is the best bet.
Don't only use online ones, get a proper one.
Whenever I use an online one i get distracted and start going to other sites.
I don't remember where I was,
When I realized life was a game.
The more seriously I took things,
The harder the rules became.

Either get a physical metronome- it shouldn't cost you more than $30- or buy something like a Korg Px4 or Line 6 POD 2.0 and play through your headphones (both have metronomes AND drum simulators).

if you do have a foot...tap it, and if for some reason you don't have a foot, well there's a metranome

This is an interesting one. One of my books said that playing in time is one of the hardest things to learn. I think experience leads to the ability to be able to play in time, that is, "knowing" the timing of the song intimately and having the technical ability to be able to play whatever it is you're trying to play in the timing of the song.

I reckon many bands and individuals struggle with this one. Just look at some Audioslave performances or gigs - sometimes they struggle to "sync" with one another. Also Nirvana - often Kurt had to have a steady beat from Dave as seen on the acoustic NY DVD.

This is where the drummer and bassist are really important, particularly so the drummer. If he's out then everything will be out. If he/she's on it, the bassist can be on it and the guitarist can go crazy over the top. That equals a good band :P

Memorise the song, fully. And I mean FULLY. Memorise when the intro starts, ends, verse, everything you can find in a song. When you are done memorising, go for it.

play with a matronome or jam with a drummer.
