just for completeness, should anyone else happen upon this thread; a decent way i've found is that if you have 24" o.c. ceiling joists, and want 16 or 12 o.c. for mounting ceiling drywall; you can attach thin furring strips perpendicular to the joists at a 12 or 16 o.c. schedule;

if you have a nail gun, that tends to be much simpler and probably cheaper than adding additional joists; especially depending on whatever wiring, plumbing and mechanical situations there may be.
