anteater celloist The Cello is a large instrument made of wood with strings stretched across its length.  It is played by resting the broad base on the floor and leaning the fretboard back across the left shoulder.  The left hand produces the chord shapes whilst the right hand plucks or uses a bow across the strings to produce the notes.

The bow can be bounced on the string for a springy light effect known as jumping whilst plucking the strings produces short sharp notes known as pizzicato.

Open cello strings sound an octave below that of the Viola although the tuning is the same with its four strings tuned to C, G, D and A in fifths.

cellist The Cello has a rich deep sound with an ethereal quality which is popular in a wide range of styles including pop, blues, rock, film and classical music.
