Oh, one more thing…it is helpful to use the overtone series to help with intonation. Simply put, it’s the way you can check a fingered pitch with an open-string pitch. If playing a G, then (on a good instrument) you should hear your open G resonating. The same technique is used when tuning the open strings, where the pitches seem to “lock” together.
