CELLO is actually short for violincello, which means "little bass viol." The cello is not simply a violin that has been blown up in size...the proportions of the instrument are different and it is played with a shorter bow than the violin, which means fewer notes can be played on a single bowing. Difficult passages can be played on the cello, but it requires greater stretch in the hand to facilitate the placement of the fingers on the longer neck of the instrument. It has to be played sitting down, placed between the knees, and there is a spike extending from the bottom to help hold it in place. Short, "plucked" notes (pizzicato) sound beautiful on this instrument, either as single notes or chords.
