wat, if anything, are the dots?

and, just to make sure, the resistors are the squiggles and the capacitors are the ||, right? then the pots are the arrows . how should the pots be wired? like : middle=input, one side=output, other side=ground, right? i just wanted to clear these things up, because i might actually build one of these sometime soon.
