Not quite sure what you mean, but if i want something to sound heavy and chunky, i will use just down strokes. For more intricate patterns, i use both. I will never play a progression with just down strokes, unless the drummr is playing something that will match (like a blast beat- but thats usually to fast anyways). It really depends on the mood of the song.

generally for rythm guitar, upstrokes just couple downstrokes if youre playing really hardand fast or if you wanna play more of a reggae feel, upstrokes give you a better shuffle.

strictly downstroking a piece will limit your maximum velocity; alternate picking is a lot more efficient and it doesnt waste energy.
