I'm not sure exactly what you mean by bass-strum. Do you mean like a consistant bass-line or bass-rhythm throughout a lot of the tune? A lot of old-style blues, and old country, have very prominant or even constantly droning bass line or rhythm. Most 12-bar blues can be done in a simpler way just by strumming a "shuffle" rhythm on just the bass strings. Many of Johnny Cash's older tunes have a strong bass-line. Old blues-guys like Mance Lipscomb and many John Lee Hooker tunes have a moreless constant bass-drone, changing with the chord positions, with treble-licks laid over them sometimes (using a constant thumbed drone and relatively simple treble lines picked with the index over them).

Un-plugged is not the same as never-was-plugged-in-to-begin-with.

Hey my dude, I know I'm a little late to the party (only 12 years), but Snow (Hey-O), by the chilis has a great strumming riff in the chorus. Got my bass dexterity up!
