Fuzz Pedal, adding a fuzz pot?

I've been working on a fuzz pedal and I had a question about where to connect my pot that controls the fuzziness of the circuit. I found a basic schematic (shown below) and was going to build upon it and add in the appropriate values.

I theoretically understand how to wire the volume pot (ground - lug 1, output jack - lug 2, output from circuit board - lug 3). But I don't get how to wire up a pot to control the fuzziness of the pedal.

Also, if there are any guitar players out there, should I add a tone knob to my fuzz circuit?

If anyone can help, please do. All help is appreciated!

The fuzz pot in the lower right corner of your drawing is connected the same way:
1 - GND
2-capacitor to GND
3- circuit (M2 emitter)

Note that your circuit is more of an overdrive than a fuzz circuit.
