I don't think switching to a cello bow will help you much as it's just a bigger version of the violin bow. Maybe your 'bowing' technique is a little off?
What exactly did you mean by "can't get it" pinkhaze?

And Splitz13 you're unlikely to break the guitar, but the bow will eventually break. And you should try bashing it against the strings like in tsrts, it's great fun
