Grind it over the keyboard, for better accuracy.
Play stuff you can barely clear, it'll take a long time before you can play hard maps. No real trick, just don't waste your time playing any not-insane map until you get S.

I'm at the moment playing mainly normal maps, and some a notch above and below. I'm generally getting B's and A's on normal with a few S ranks. My main issue with trying to play higher difficulties is that I simply can't deal with the speeds. One some maps I can do blind clicks after the rhythm which actually works for half or less of the map, but in the end I fail due to the speed being too much.
So if there is any actual advice or strategy to learning to handle higher speeds I would appreciate if you could share. As mentioned before, it could just be lack of experience.
Most players single-tap and alternate for streams.

I'll assume you use the keyboard and mouse since that's the most common play style, if so it helps to alternate between keyboard keys on every hit, results of this method are people like Silvia, I don't think I need to explain more.
DJPop streams are always a pain in the behind just ignore those.
Forgot to mention, the 1 main con with alternating I found... was DJPop streams. I could never time them correctly, and I find it much easier with a main finger.
And patterns impossible if you play with a tablet, plus having good coordination for alternating is not easy to achieve, example Ignacio from Chile one of the best players from all America, at least when I asked him, he could never handle alternating which is why he single-tapped those val0108 high BPM maps, same Mesita.
