Matt Palmer plays ami scales (also called tremolo scales). Philip Hii is a noted advocate for this also. I have often wondered how applicable the technique is in real musical settings. Mr. Palmer seems to do very well with it where it works and I suppose, but am not sure, he plays other scale fingerings when three notes per string don't work.
He does have a little book about it (80pp.) and goes into detail about all the exceptions and how he deals with them. The book is called "The Virtuoso Guitarist, Vol. 1. A New Approach To Fast Scales".
At about the same time as this book, another one was published covering the same topic. It is by Matthieu Jacquot and is called "Natural Velocity: the a,m,i scales technique - applied to the Chaconne in D min BWV 1004".
