Just as an aside, you have ordered and built a Road Rage to go with the Pasty Face, correct?  The "normal" 9V wiring won't work with Pasty Face as you need a positive ground effect.  Unless you're only going with battery power, in which case you just have to reverse the leads.

... I have ordered one now. Pretty new to this, anything else you think I'll need?

Hmm OK, well I guess I'll put this on hold until I order more parts.

Thanks, I was really curious how this would all fit together -- it wasn't making sense.

Awesome thanks.

Next question if you don't mind.  I have all the resistors and capacitors soldered in now. I'm starting on the pots, but I just noticed that the instructions don't really go into how to hook up the IN/G/OUT. On the Pasty Face there is one spot for IN one for Ground and one for OUT.

The Jack I have have 6 spots used to connect it to something:

I imagine I would need two of these jacks, one for IN and one for OUT. So that's twelve spots but one 2 soldering points on the PCB.  Also what do I do with the ground spot?

I've never built a pedal before but have some experience in building arduino projects and the like. So I thought I'd give this a shot. I ordered three PCBs which arrived today and had a getting started question.

Basically, what do i do with those red lines? The impression I get is that I am supposed to solder a jump wire from one to the next, for instance from R3 to C8. If so how should I go about this? Solder both the jump wire and the resistor together where it's indicated and then the capacitor and the other end of the wire as indicated?
