U must define clearer what you mean.

Do you want a Spanish sound, or flamenco, cause these are different.

Just like classical music and Yngwie Solo's are different to, though they share a same sound.

Hmmm

Yes there will be purists and takers out there, but that aside,

Define what sound you want. Give some artists you like, or how you would like to sound. It depends on how deep you wanna go.

It's the same as if u play a bebop line in a rock context, it sounds jazz, but it isn't jazz.

Exactly the same here.

I found its easy to start off with finger picking the chords:

Am Dm E or Em, then somewhere throw in a quick F to E. Maybe throw in a:

--------------------------------
--------------------------------
1--1--1--2--1----------------
2--2--2--3--2----------------
2--2--2--3--2----------------
--------------------------------

Mess around in the scales mentioned above, they are indeed used to get the Spanish/Flamenco sound. Perhaps look into a nice classical guitar (nylon strings), this may help with the tone.

I'll sell you a classical for a tenner =)

Those are the main scales used, yes.
I don't know much about the chords though.

I would also recommend, listen to a lot of the music in the style you want to play, then spending some time with your guitar. Learning to play by ear takes a while, but it's worth it.
