    I'm trying to build a guitar fuzz, and have encountered a problem.
    On the schematics several components are connected to ground (the whole bottom-left serves as "virtual" ground). I'm trying to build this project on a breadboard and I have no idea how and where to connect these grounded components, for example R11 or R2.
    Can anyone help with this?

    Ground is the center connection of R12 and R13. This is a virtual ground, since its true potential varies with load (only buffered by C8...C11). If the circuit consumes little power, as I assume, this will be o.k. for that purpose. Connect all ground connections to this point. Since on a breadboard you can't use a ower plane (on a pcb you could), use separate wires for each ground connection and form a star connection at C8...C11)
