Try it on around 74bpm. I think it depends on how you play the notes as to what speed you choose.

Thanks I am ok with the strumming but there are a couple of licks I need to slow down but my playing ability with a metronome is not good. I'm not sure if it's also because there are chord changes within the bar ie most of the chords last 2 beats

The two licks are both 8 notes in a single bar. I did find them hard to fit into the song when I first learnt it. In the end I practiced the licks until I could play them fast enough and then practiced them in the song as changing between strumming and picking notes can be a challenge for me.

I'm exactly the same but getting there with the song my biggest weakness is always timing thanks for the support

If you can't play the song slowly without mistakes you'll never play it at full
tempo. Play it slowly with the licks until you can play it correctly. Then work
on bringing it up to tempo.
