Funk Strumming Speed

Trying to play Maroon 5’s ‘Move Like Jagger’ (Dont Judge !) and struggling to play it at full speed.

I’m assuming the tactic here is to play at a slower speed and when totally comfortable bump up the BPM ??

Obviously there will be a maximum strumming speed that you cant exceed with any technique but I was wondering if this ‘Ceiling’ is different for different people ??

Welcome to the forum

Yes this is the best and fastest way to speed up. Make sure you make no mistakes before speeding up. Rhythm is the most important part of Funk.

Just like being an athlete some will always be faster than others but like I said in my previous statement The Rhythm is more important than the speed. Once you get good at funk rhythm you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to play fast.

Thanks for your time !
