How to make a click track with metronome?

I am very new to Abelton. I have Live Lite 8 Fender Edition.

I am trying to record my first song with my guitar.

The song starts at 4/4 at100 bpm for 24 measures.

Then it switches to 3/4 at 120 bpm (not sure exactly how many measures yet, still need to count them)

It switches back to the beginning for 24 measures, then back to the second part and then ends with the beginning 24 measures.

I want to be able to set up a track using the metronome to keep the beat throughout the whole song, changing time signatures and BPM at the correct places and am not sure how to do this. I have searched on-line and haven't found anything that helps.

I am not interested in adding drums or other instruments I just want to be able to set up a metronome track to keep time.

Any ideas and/or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Here's how to use the click track facility:

    and here's how to change the tempo & time signature in both the session and arrangement view:

    (if you're using Chrome and the two videos fail to load, click the little shield icon to the right of the address bar and click Load unsafe script)
