Read your stuff back from the beginning, re: "spent some time playing Cello".
Yes. The Cello is purportedly the most difficult stringed instrument to play, and likely one of the hardest of any instrument to master. Even a modest degree of Cello practice would generate powerful fingering prowess that could easily be translated to the guitar. Probably the original poster should post some of the kid's playing (preferably mp3 format along with the obligatory YouTube. 'Cause I don't go anywhere near YouTube. Never have, never will...) so that we can provide a better evaluation.
My solo, acoustic 6-string guitar version of one of the most famous intrumentals of the Pop/Rock Era--"Rebel-Rouser"--the Duane Eddy-Lee Hazelwood composition that Duane Eddy took to #6 US Billboard in 1958.
In the 7th grade through high-school my best friend played 1st chair cello. He was a bright kid.
requires an "ear for music" similar to lap-steel. :-)
That's my opinion - playing an orchestral stringed instrument builds a remarkable ear.
....and is likely why I can't play slide worth a crap.
