hey guys i hope some one can answer my question. I wired up my guitar today and feel really dumbe because its a one humbucker sg so it should be simple. I wired it all up then ran a ground from the back of the pot to the bridge. I thought this grounded the strings but every time i touched them they buzzed. Once i took that out it stopped. What did i do wrong? Thanks in advance. Heres a pic of how i wired it.

would the guitar still play if it was mixed because it played the only thing messing it up was the string ground it made it buzz when i touched the string. Also is there a certain way to tell the ground from the hot besides trying it. My experience is more in wood working so im not to educated in wiring. Thanks.
