Whatever makes most sense with the materials you have on hand.
You can go from 1 GND of your arduino, just to your potentiometer, and from the other, go to the LCD and solder a wire between the 2 grounds.

Yes, the wire I was talking about is between the 2 he needs on the LCD is the "pink" wire I added in the diagram Perhaps I wasn't clear enough, but hopefully he will get the idea
What's the deal with these diagrams anyways? How do you guys visualize what is going on in a more complex circuit when everyone, from what I've seen so far in Arduino land, hands this out as the diagram?
QuoteWhatever makes most sense with the materials you have on hand.Terminal block strip is very useful, as is tag strip, both of which come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Thanks for the help folks, I understand it now.Concerning reading diagrams, seeing as how I am a beginner I have been using fritzing primarily but I would prefer to learn how to read traditional schematics...can anyone recommend a good resource on where to start to learn?Thank you.
