Hey guys, one of the chord progressions I use a lot is:
<<Am - G - F - E. >>
This is one of many basic Flamenco patterns.

Let me know if it works for you.

Yeah, I'm spanish and I completely agree.
Phrygian scale is used in Flamenco style, and respecting the renaissance music I think
mostly is a serie of major and minor scales.

The major, natural minor, melodic minor, and harmonic minor are common scales you'll see in classical, but it's certainly more than scales since you hear the same ones used in metal/rock/jazz and the music is completely different.
