Short question but an important one. I am a 4 month violin player
I follow a tuner when I play to see if the note I played was perfectly in tune. My ear is new so it is not reliable. I can figure out if I am on a wrong note, I can tell the difference between a B and a C (relative pitch) but I am not so good at telling if my B is too flat (but not being a B flat) which is what my tuner tells me. I hope you understand what I mean
My question is if it is that important to always be perfectly in tune 100% green light on the tuner and all or is it okay to be alittle bit flat or sharp? Not so flat that its on the brink of being a B flat but being like an itty bitty flat or sharp. When I play I sometimes hit it perfect and sometimes I am a milimeter away being a teeny bit too sharp (according to my tuner). Is it okay to have some lee-way when it comes to your intonation?
