LOL. i don't know if there is a set time either, but my gf and i are prime examples. She has almost no rhythm whatsoever. i never had a problem with it. natural i guess. so its mostly talent and practice. whatever you do, dont give up

It takes time and effort. There are a lot of times I have to make a conscious effort to keep on time in my playing.

I'm kinda funny, my inner metronome happens to start kicking in as soon as the drummer starts playing.

I'm of the belief that not everyone is born with the perfect musical ear. I do think anyone can work themselves to a point where their timing is impeccable, but to some it just is inherent.

Just as a lot of things are natural for some and not for others.
That's how we've been made, w/ no two people alike, but some similarities and some differences.

My inner metronome has been there since birth, afaik, but I have still had to work on controlling it in light of things like excitement and adrenaline and caffeine and not enough sleep and so forth.
All of my students and most musicians that I play with know that I'm almost Nazi-like when it comes to tempo and timing. It's just something that I'm VERY naturally attentive to for whatever reason.

Some people are natural athletes, some people are natural artists, some people naturally have good time. Just a gift some people naturally have and some wont.

I know a drummer who spent a year sleeping with a metronome in his ears at about 110, I think it was.
Apparently this was extremely helpful.

I knew a drummer in college who regularly had a metronome ticking in his room, while studying, watching TV, whatever. He'd set it at one tempo for a few days, then he'd pick a new tempo.

He was the steadiest drummer I've ever worked with. Whether it was due to his constant metronome listening or not, who's to say?

I wonder if he's still sane...

Probably not, at least on some levels. He gets extra points if he's the drummer and the singer.

Cheap alternative: sleep with an old analog alarm clock next to your head, one that has an audible tick-tock sound.
You'll eventually know EXACTLY how fast 60bpm is...but be careful to not set the alarm.
