Pure minor scale should do something for you. Try some droning notes, and real simple rhythms. No syncopation, eighths and sixteenths.

Try getting some tabs from a group called Blackmore's Night. Yes, this is a band started by THE Ritchie Blackmore from Deep Purple and his wife, and he likes to do the sort of thing you're looking for. Maybe those will be a good reference for you.

Check out Stone Roses - Elizabeth My Dear
Dave Mustain has wrote some of the most amazing solos...
That he can't actually play!

Use modes. Esp. Dorian and Aeolian. Lots of intervals in 5ths / 4ths and some 6ths. Gives it that archaic open feel. Droning bass (as has been said) for dance rhythms. No chromatic notes. Try Phrygian mode for a special Italian / quasi-arabic feel.
