Um, look at a wiring diagram like this one:
See the .047uf cap (green thing)? that's how it's supposed to be wired.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Now if i have to replace the pot but the capacitor and the connecting wire are still connected to the old one how do I remove the solder from the old one so i can connect the wires to the new one?

A solder sucker is also quite useful.

Its a spring loaded plunger. You hold it near the molten solder, hit the button ad it sucks it up.

You could also use solder wick material, which acts like a candle and wicks the solder away from components.
