Can you play classical guitar already? And if you can, it would have to be a pretty high level of playing to play good flamenco. I know I can't play proper flamenco, it's much beyond my reach for now and a long long time.

If you can and consider yourself able, well, you have to understand compas. Which is explained nicely in this thread:

You should work on compas and some techniques like rasgueados(which I can't be bothered to explain... already some great videos on youtube) and then move onto songs.

It's not going to be easy at all, it takes lots of hard work. These guys have been practicing 8 hours a day since they were 9 or 10 so don't be surprised if you never get to their level. It's virtually impossible unless you have been working like them since childhood.

God I'm a defeatist. Good luck man!

Song is Malaguena - Fransisco Tarrega, this is what got me into flamenco =]

Don't want to sound obnoxious but that isn't flamenco. It's classical guitar. Tarrega was a classical guitar composer.
