Hey, does anyone know some techniques or exercises that will help improve my timing?

Or is a case of sitting down with a metronome and hours upon hours of beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep etc etc?
Turn the volume down on your metronome and turn it up on your guitar. When you are playing in time, you shouldn't even hear the beep!
