The cello is the second largest stringed instrument of the violin family. It is generally bowed but can also be plucked. A cello player is known as a "cellist" and the notation is written in the bass clef. The strings of a cello are tuned in perfect fifths and are an octave lower than a viola. The cello emerged around 1530 in nothern Italy, and early paintings show the cello being played alongside violins and violas.
