Rick, yes, one example of down-up thumb strokes is Wes Montgomery, some flamenco players also use the technique.

The easiest way I've found to decipher the apparently impossible is just to write it down first, away from the instrument. Once you've got the notes on paper, it's easier to figure out how to fit them on an instrument.

Playing them, of course, is another matter...
