º means diminished. On a Jazz lead sheet it's going to mean a dim7/º7.

Here are a few typical voicings...based on a G dim

barre the high 2nd fret with your index, ring on the 3rd fret, then lay your middle across onto the low E...

|---|---|---|---|
|---|-5-|---|---|
|---|---|-3-|---|
|---|-7-|---|---|
|---|---|---|---|
|---|---|-R-|---|
          3




|---|---|-R-|---|
|---|-5-|---|---|
|---|---|-3-|---|
|---|-7-|---|---|

|---|---|---|---|
          3



|---|---|---|---|
|---|---|---|-3-|
|---|-7-|---|---|
|---|---|---|-5-|
|---|---|-R-|---|
|---|---|---|---|
          10


Nice thing is...since dim7 chords are symmetrical you can move the shape up or down in m3's (3 frets) and youll get the same chord, in a different inversion.

could theoretically just be a diminished triad. but yeah in the context of a lead sheet you'll throw in the bb7th just cause.

Could someone please tell me what a Bo chord is. I have it in jazz at school and I don't really know what an "o" means to a chord.

I think you need a wash, mate.

Obvious troll is obvious.
