I have no need to develop a conscience regarding good intonation, I'm obsessed with checking every note with an open string or a perfect interval double stop. But I drive myself up the wall with this when I learn a new piece and my intonation is not reliable or consistent yet. Should I first get the piece under my fingers and wait until I have consistent intonation before I start checking or should I be checking right from the start and get my intonation reliable measure by measure?
