Watch the Sonata No.1 for Solo Violin online guitar lesson by Tony Smotherman from Classical Flatpicking Explorations

It's important to realize when working through this (or any other piece of music) that there are multiple ways to play the same passages. Fingerings can make or break a performance and all the musical benefits and lessons in a piece. Make sure that if you do find something that works better for you as far as fingerings are concerned, that you look ahead to upcoming measures and fingerings so that the transitions flow well together. In the end, it's all about the way the music sounds.
