    We have:

    1) String height
    2) Inotation
    3) Tuning

    Which one is 1,2,3.... or do you go back from one to another till all three are perfect?

    I do step one first and get the height where I want it, then step two and three flipped back and forth until both are correct.

    1) relief

    2) string height

    3) intonation


    You tune to pitch after every single adjustment and before every single time you play.
