My name is Rick Robbins (hence the double-R in guitfiddleRR). I am a career musician and teacher. I have played guitar since the summer of 1999 and I have been an active musician since 2004. Since then I have formed 4 bands myself, and been a guitarist/vocalist/bassist/drummer in as many as 6 additional bands. I am currently a founding member of Helliana and I have also just put together a new band, with whom I am focusing most of my musical attention. I have also taught guitar and musical theory at several clubs and high schools over the past 3 years. I play guitar, bass, drums, upright bass, cello, viola, piano and keyboards, some harmonica and flute, and vocals on occasion. I love my work and I am dedicated 110 percent as it envelopes me completely
