    Tap your feet in a 1-2-3-4 sequence to an imaginary drum beat or a metronome if you have one. If you have a drummer to practice with, there is no excuse for not being able to keep time. Just practice more.

    @guitaristofm...feet tapping is a very good habit for a beginner or some1 who finds difficulty in getting rhythm...

    try this ...

    play the song in ur mind...and start tapping ur feet to get along the rhythm.
    as soon as u r ready or u think u got hold of rhythm ....start strumming ....but remember ...strum along wid the tapping of ur feet...they shud be in same frequency...

    also try humming....it also helps in getting rhythm...or sing.

    if ur still finding it difficult to tap your feet and play along then invest in a metronome like dmf suggested

    just swing your hand with some basic chords preferably G,C,D,Em . No particular rhythm to follow, just play what you feel good. I recommend to try the song -knocking on heaven's doors (almost 100 different versions,might make one yourself). Try with power chords first until your hands get full feel of rhythm. the chords to use: G5 d5 A5;G5 d5 c5
    then try with actual chords:g d am; g d c
    Just play the music of the song while you're playing, i bet you'll catch the melody very soon and play the suitable rhythm. Remember, music is not copying or memorising but totally feeling and creating.
