search google for tap tempo programs. all you have to do it hit the space bar in time to the song and it tells you the exact tempo of it.

metronomes are for increasing picking/legato speeds for the most part. to use it how you want to is just as easy.
1. Listen for the beat of your song
2.adjust metronome speed until it is in sync with your beat

Of course the time siganture of your song dictates the original setting you just need to count the beats.
