Here's a short falseta (instrumental melodic section) of the flamenco palo (style) guajiras. It's composed by the phenomenal Paco De Lucia, and it took much practice to get it up to this yet imperfect state. I eagerly await improving further in flamenco guitar over time!
A guajira is considered an 'import style' of flamenco, having been greatly influenced by external (from Andalucia) factors. The guajiras has many elements of Cuban music, but still retains a characteristic flamenco 12-beat compas (rhythmic cycle).
