    "ord." (for "ordinario")

    Or "nat." for "naturale".

    Thanks for the info! So what would be more universally understood- "ord.", "nat.", or are both equal?

    Either one is fine. Any string player will understand either one. I generally use "ord." but that's just out of habit.

    I've seen ord. more often in orchestral scores, but either is acceptable.
