reading chords

I know that if a chord has an "x" above a string that string is not strummed.  If it has an "o" above it, it is strummed open.  What does it mean if there is a diamond above a string?

Re: reading chords

Hi Steph and welcome to Chordie,

Some chord charts (like the one on Chordie) show a 'diamond' instead of an 'O' and as you already know this means it is played open.
