Dear teacher
I have problem when play the C major chord, sometime it's sound good, but when practice next time sometime not harmony so I try to find the finger position that make it sound harmony, does it involve in tuning if we not 100% perfect fifth tuned of 3 strings G D A? because it's like practice with new finger position everytime,

2. Can I use the harmonic on first position (finger 1 2 3 4 ) to find the correct position of finger and relationship to other string to play the chord more harmony

Hello, all the incoming detailed questions, I just do not have the time. In the nearer future we will install a communication board on the website, where users can comment other users questions and we will have a FAQ site as well. For now I will try to answer your question, although I do not quite understand what you mean. Of course you have to tune the instrument (demonstrated in beginners IV or V, I do not remember), but you do not need to tune it in a super-super-super-perfect way! Then, if you want to play a C-Major-chord, you just play open C, then third finger E on the C-string, then open G, then fourth finger C on the G-string, then first finger E on the D-string, then fourth finger G on the D-string and finally second finger C on the A-string. And backwards. Do not worry, if the same chord sounds out of tune the next day, just try again. After a while you will gain more and more security of where to put the fingers. The Cello is not a piano! You have to get used to the fingerpositions. And: do not pay too much attention to the intonation in the beginning, rather go for a good sound and for a relaxed handling. The intonation will fall into place after a while automatically. If you like, you can mark the positions of your first and fourth fingers with some kind of stickers on your fingerboard. Only for the very beginning and only for a short time.
Hope that helps for the moment, best regards

Hans Zentgraf
