Hey guys, im a guitar newbie, been playing 5 months, I'd say i'm where i want to be for the time frame i have had, but i can't for the life of me get timings down no matter how much i work on them or easy songs...

Any suggestions?

I had a friend who couldn't keep time with a metronome. He didn't even know how they could help!

I taught him rythem by teaching him how to dance. If you can feel the groove enough to dance, then you can feel it enough to play guitar to it.

Should i be doing a little drill as i strum to the beat? Or just do a simple 1 2 3 4 dexterity drill as i listen?

slow down - you won't be able to keep time quickly until you can do it slowly.
Actually called Mark!

Oh. My. Gosh.

That's the best, ever.

Just slow down and play each part nice and slow. Then once you got the hang of it with your eyes closed use a metronome and normal speed. That should help
