I suggest a dose of Bach as recorded by Paul Galbraith (8 string), Narciso Yepes (10 string), or Goran Sollscher (11 string). One of Yepes' main reasons for adopting the 10-string was that he felt he was "only playing half of what Bach wrote". Or words to that effect.
What about the four string violin or cello (and of course the viola and double bass too)?
Don't worry, I"m sure the grinch eventually will be Bach!
Whoopee! Round 2, just in time for New Years.
