It's called a bow, and you need to put this wax-like stuff on it called rosin before it will make any sound. And for the love of god, please get lessons before attempting to play it.

First of all: the hairs on the long stick(known as a bow) should have hair like things on one side. Make sure you are using those, not the wood of the bow.
That's about as much as I can explain wihout being confusing. I could show you more if I were there in person. But alas, I play viola, so not much more.

Don't play it, silly, just use it to look sensitive and intellegent.

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

As far as I can remember, it's tuned (low to high) G-D-A-E.

Use Resin on the bow before you even attempt to play

Get lessons

The first time you play it you have to put on quite a bit. When you play make sure you really dig into the strings. If there's still no sound then put on more. Also, it's spelled 'Rosin'. Sorry, I'm a Grammar Nazi.

You should put cello rosin on it when it's the first time rosining it.
