Thanks for this video, Jeff. I've spent my guitar time today on learning what you've got in here, harmonizing the scale in 3rds and the Phyrygian scale and mode. I love the sound of it and it's been a fun afternoon. Could you please show your right hand for the Flamenco cadence? You are getting a castanets type rhythm in there.

Great thread and nice video instruction--thanks for that!
I'm a big fan of the style and hear it all the time as I'm a fan of Western/Cowboy music. Aside from the obvious Marty Robbins stuff that Grady played on--Rich O'Brien is a great player to check out. He has some solo records that have a lot of Spanish influenced tunes (he is a master at other styles as well).

I can recognize his style on many others records in the genre too. Here's some examples from a couple of his solo recordings:

And as a sideman:

Yes, those harmonized scales/double stops are characteristic of the style. I also find the use of arpeggios and playing with the melody are helpful--to me it's a very melodic style. And using hammer-ons, pull-offs, trills, etc, as well as tremolo picking (which I struggle with).
