Well, playing E chord, F barre chord, and G barre chord together makes that kind of spanish sounding guitar that I think is on a commertial...

Indeed.
But, I've played a few flamenco songs and they are usually in E.

Try A minor, D minor, A minor, E, A minor.
I dono.

Listen to Muse's City of Delusion and Screenager for some cool Spanish-esque chord progressions.

Also, Thrice's acoustic version of Opaque.

I second that, both songs have a Spanish type of sound. Well the start and end of City of Delusion.

Oh, don't get your panties in a bunch. Chrissakes. He wasn't trying to be racist, you putz, he probably just couldn't think of the word "flamenco."

I think the most important thing to do to learn Spanish music is to understand the rhythm. Spanish guitar has lots of hits and purcussive strikes which is what makes it really difficult to play as you have to learn quite a few new right hand styles and become very proficient at them. You will also find Barre chords to be the most common because you can simply release the strings for the purcussive strikes. It all takes a lot of coordination but is well worth it.
