Yes he was an influence for me but not quite as much because he played a Tele Keef played lots of different guitars. I've never seen Ray with anything but a Tele and to me was the first that I took notice in that super country picken style that is carried on by the likes of Brent Mason, Brad Paisly Redd etc. There were others that certainly came before Ray Flack but he's the first I noticed.
