I was going through some of the arpeggio fragments on Ted's sheet
http://www.tedgreene.com/images/lessons/singlenote/ArpeggioFragments_1.pdf
But i became confused when trying to find the root on some of them, for example, on the right half of the sheet, in the first row, second column, right under Em11/13, none of the notes are an E, all the notes if i am correct, are F#, A#, C#, F, G#, C

They all sound great but i just don't know how to use them because of this, i'm sure the confusion is my fault, but if there is anyone that can explain to me what i am seeing wrong or what i am not seeing, i would really appreciate it.

thanks in advance

Hi Saten10,
I see your confusion.  That second chord in the top row that is labeled as Em11/13 has no root in the arpeggio.  The notes are G, B, D, F#, A, C#.   The fret number on the left side of the diagram that has a "2" in parentheses is correct.  Use that. 
I believe that the number "14" below it is incorrect...it should be "15" (for the higher octave position of the same form).
I like these type of arpeggios because they are a series of stacked thirds.  If you include the open E on the 6th string you get:  1, b3, 5, b7, 9, 11, 13...and then continuing on the 2nd and 1st strings, add:  1, b3, 5.... 
Cool to learn these moves because they fit nicely in lots of places. If you look at the triads it creates:  Em, G,  Bm, D, F#m, A, C#dim, Em  -- everything for that tonality.

Charles,
Good...sure, that is the more correct way to see the fret position:  2 OR 14. 
It is a bit confusing until one understands what is meant.
Thanks for clarifying.
