     Cello music attracts gnats.

    The cello follows a baritone line. That's not too far from rock bass, so the cellist is probably grooving to it the way rock musicians and listeners groove to a song.

    Because they don't like what they are playing

    I've played viola in the orchestra in school for 7 years and I shook my head quite a bit when I was playing because I got into the music. It's the same reason why a cellist shakes their head, or a violinist or a bassist or a drummer or a guitarist would shake their head. They are really into the music they're playing.

    They're shaking their heads in disbelief that they took up cello in the first place.

    Same as any personal oddity displayed by any musician - or actor, dancer, singer - or sports figure. (The Ichiro double sleeve tug at every Yankees at-bat.). Many people have idiosyncrasies - I do, you do. When they interfere with your technique, then they need to be addressed.
