Things labeled R1, R2, etc. are resistors. They are labeled R2 or whatever to label them and tell them apart, and the number underneath this label is the value. C stands for capacitors. Q1 is a transistor, a BJT in this case. R5 is a potentiometer. D's are diodes. Those are the basics, but you should really research this before you begin; you don't seem to know much yet at all.

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.

i'd make sure and get some basic electronics under your belt before building and effects pedal. they aren't hard to do, i build a 10 band eq in about 2 hours, but you've gotta have the proper equipment. you'll need a soldering iron, solder, remover/wick, your components, a circuit or proto board, and a decent understanding of schematics and how basic connections work.

i can help you with anything you need, just send me a pm, but be sure you know what you're doing before you put it together because you could take out your amp or other effects pedals if you wire something incorrectly.

I remember this one time - Jesus played Eruption on a lute with strings made from the hair of 23 virgins.

It was pretty hardcore.

If you're looking for a muff, ^ that would be the best bet. More complicated, but you can order the board and just everything where the picture show. (You'd have to order components/box) or http://www.generalguitargadgets.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=20&category_id=7&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=45 is a complete kit.

^^Which is why I asked how to read a schematic. I have done electrical work before, I know how to solder. I was just unsure as how to read the schematic.

EDIT: end citizen, I am looking for a simple project to start, I came across this schematic for the muff and it is supposed to be very basic.

Yeah... I should do that. I took the "Official" part out, but I guess that wasn't good enough.
