Pythagorean or Equal Temerament Fifths???

November 15, 2018, 1:29 PM · Is there any agreement as to which temperament to use in tuning the violin to "perfect fifths" --Pythagorean or equal temperament? My teacher says it really doesn't matter, they are so close, and my intonation mistakes are way off the mark of either system... what say you all?
