you will make it more accurate if you use a tuner to find the notes.

Here's an online keyboard - it can help You to compare the pitch:

I was just going to say the same thing as Naska. Kevin made on that you can print and tape on your fiddle. Someone will certainly paste the link. :-)

IMO it is better to do without fingering tapes, even if you don't have a tuner.

You need to train your ears to know whether you are on pitch.  IMO tapes are a distraction from that.

It would be good to use something like the virtual keyboard that Naska linked to.

But how about trying this: use the Musescore software to write a score of the C major scale or any scale.  Then you can make the software play the scale so that you can hear it and play along with it.  And it doesn't have to be scales ... to start, you could play along with any slow tune that you like, if you can get the sheet music in musescore.  That way you will be hearing the exact pitches in the scales or tunes that you like. The program and some good video tutorials are free from  I think that will be one of the best ways to train your ears and your fingers at the same time.

Her it is. Just make sure that when it is printed the scaling is set to none.
