I'm trying to get my head around 'cello fingering. I'm struggling to find a fingering chart. The one that I've found one online doesn't seem quite right.
Does anyone have either an online resource or a book / chart they recommend that covers at least up to 5th position?

I found Lorna Taylor's 'Position Pieces' and 'Go Fourth' very helpful at the time. It goes through the positions systematically and has pieces appropriate to each position.
Roseau is correct in the sense that many people talk about 1/2, 1st and 4th position, whilst 2nd and 3rd (and their upper and lower variety) do not get much of a mention. However, you will be using them all of the time, but they are quite often referred to as 1st finger on such and such a note. So you do have to learn them, regardless of what you later choose to call them inside your own head.
Hope this helps.
