Logic Express 9, Want to hear Metronome but not record it

So very much to learn. I feel like such a dummy. I like to hear a click track while I record my guitar parts so that I keep tight meter. I recorded my first guitar track with the metronome playing and it recorded the metronome as well. I only want to hear the metronome while I am playing, I dont want to record it. How can I listen to the metronome while I am recording my guitar, bass or keyboards but not record the metronome.

Is that an acoustic guitar with a real mic in front? Are you listening to the metronome through your speakers? If yes and yes, then that's the wrong way to do it: you want to monitor the metronome through headphones and turn off your speakers when doing any kind of recording with a mic.

 

For an electric guitar/bass or keyboard plugged straight into the audio interface (no mic) that wouldn't be a problem.

It is not an acoustic guitar. I have my electric guitar plugged into my GIO and my headphones plugged into my GIO. When I plug in my GIO to my computer it says in the manual to select the GIO as my input and output so the speakers to my computer are not used at all, in fact when you plug in the GIO it automatically becomes the input and output. Everything is monitored through my headphones and the GIO. So I am trying to just have the metronome play while I am recording the guitar but I do not want to record the metronome. When I tried to record it recorded the guitar and the metronome on the same track.

Did you ever open Maestro and change some settings in there? You could have set it up to mix the metronome with the guitar before the Logic input by accident.

 

In Logic, the metronome will come out of Out 1 & 2, that's it (unless again you changed that yourself). There's no reason at all Logic could be routing the metronome to a rec-enabled track, so my guess is it's happening in Maestro or it's something else as lookatthisguy suggested.
