Violin string question

February 6, 2018, 10:39 PM · Hi! I’m new to violin and have this one question. So if I wanted to play a G note on the D string. To play it would I press down on E , F on the d string and leave G open. Or would I just put my finger on the G string and leave the other fingers off? I’m so sorry if this makes absolute no sense!? thank you!
