On occasion while looking at the chords to a song I see a little circle to the right and above the note letter. It resembles a degree mark. For example you might see a C followed a few beats later by another C with this degree mark after it. Can anyone please tell me what this means? None of my many chord charts share anything on this. Thanks

So it looks like C, am I right? If so, it's a symbol for a diminished chord (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diminished_chord). You might also see this written as Cdim.
