'STRUM 4 Steve'
Steve Mireau, 25, sits in the living room of his parents' house on Paperjack Drive. A self-taught guitarist, he prepares to play a song he admits he memorized.
"I can't read music," Steve says, blue eyes twinkling. "People put music in front of me and it's like Spanish to me."
That's not to mean that Steve is a beginner. In fact, since he first taught himself seven years ago, he has been the rhythm guitarist for the local band "Mark Stary and the Whiskey Roses."
