Known in China as “Super Lightning Guitar Slappy Man”, Sam Westphalen’s unique take on the percussive acoustic guitar style has received worldwide recognition. His YouTube videos of pop covers, metal covers, jazz compositions, and comedy songs have gathered over 6 million views and have been hailed and promoted by artists such as Pantera, Megadeth, MC hammer, Andy McKee, John Petrucci of Dream Theatre, and the members of Journey, who stumbled across Sam while he was busking on the streets of Sydney. Sam has played at some of Australia’s leading festivals, including Peat’s Ridge Festival and Splendour In The Grass. He has recently just come back from his second tour of China with Maton guitars, playing shows and clinics in 24 of the counties cities all up.
