    I’ve met some bass players who have playing the cello in their music instruments played histories. A well-respected local player, Doug Innis did, Mingus did, and so does John Patitucci. I played it for a while too. Drawing the bow across the strings tugs and pulls at emotions and the player feels the deep vibrations from the instrument’s body itself. You literally hug a cello to play it.
