1/2 Position Cello Fingering Chart

1/2 Position For Cello

All of the standard notes that can be played on the cello are organized in finger patterns called positions.  The diagram above is a pictorial representation of what half position looks like for cellists.  This is the lowest standard position on the fingerboard where your fingers are closest to the nut and pegs.   The notes indicated above are all at half step intervals starting from the open string.  There are 4 rows of notes across each string that will be played by one of your four left hand playing fingers.

1st Row of Notes:      Played by the 1st finger (index)
2nd Row of Notes:    Played by the 2nd finger (middle)
3rd Row of Notes:     Played by the 3rd finger (ring)
4th Row of Notes:     Played by the 4th finger (pinkie)
