Darkskies (Steven Cave)

I've been playing guitar and keyboard off and on since my first guitar that my grandfather gave me for my 5th birthday in 1970. I am certainly not a Guitar God or master of the keyboard, however, I do my best to make an enjoyable experience with my music. I have always had music as a big part of my everyday life and I personally listen and play my music for most of my waking hours. I am open to all forms and styles of music but I have a particular fanciful interest in the Blues and Heavy Metal.
