Thanks Jack and Stewart for your feedback.

Yes, looking back on the video I see that the melody is a little swallowed by the "accompaniment" (open e in the triplet). Thanks for pointing that out!
Stewart wrote:One of the main problems I have with Soleares is the right hand fingering security e.g. during the runs that use of mixture of p and mi I'm not confident about getting the right string. It might just be a consequence of my long break from playing, but I wonder whether it's a lack of technique too?
This is one of my main problems (not only in Soleares) that I've recently started to deal with. I think the main solution to this problem is to have a stable right hand position no matter what you're playing. It's worth trying to find a position where both rest strokes and free strokes may be executed with the thumb and fingers without drastic shifting of the right hand/wrist. It seems that M. Delcamp accomplishes this by keeping his thumb "out of line" with ima. Some people say that your rh thumb and index finger should create an "x." Also, in his video of Soleares watch how the arch in his wrist barely changes. (I notice in my video that I kept a stable hand/wrist position in the first Solea and the Final, but failed to do so on some of the easier rest strokes).
Two things have helped me begin to keep a stable right hand position. First are the "Polyphonie" exercises in lesson 1: I'm trying to play the thumb and finger rest strokes without altering my right hand or wrist position. I'm also trying to apply this to to Danse d'Avila, Old Macdonald, etc. Second are these videos by Pavel Steidl I found on this forum. The first video is especially good in displaying right hand position--the staccato exercises are great too.

While Steidl is not my favorite guitarist, he's got some great things to say about technique. It's helped me--hope it helps you too.
