He had never played before, but, one day, he decided to pick one up and give it a try. Months later, he says it's one of his favorite hobbies.
Michael Richards, who graduated from Campbellsville High School in May, learned to play guitar when he attended the afterschool Eagle Excellence program.
Richards said he can't really explain why he decided to start playing last fall.
"I decided one day, 'Why don't I just pick up a guitar and start playing?'"
