Whoever says playing just upstrokes needs to have their head examined.

not really I read an article some where about a guitar player (I don't remeber who) that spent a really long time only playing with upstrokes so that when he played properly he would be even faster

Don't know who it was or if how well it worked but it was some famous shredder so I figured it worked alright

That was Paul Gilbert i'm guessing.

Playing with upstrokes suverely limited his playing, sure, once someone told him to alternate pick he had awesome technique because he'd practiced so long with just upstrokes.
