What does the "R" represent on the depressed notes?

@ wizzardoneca
Although I can't see it written in the lesson, those three octave shapes come from the three moveable chord shapes of E, A and C respectively.
'R' would be the root notes of these chords.
When these shapes are moved around the neck, the root would not stay as E, A and C of course.

What does justin mean when he's saying we should know the notes on the two bottom strings? Is he referring to knowing these? And if that's the case, can I assume that the graph he posted for the notes on the neck is going from high-E to low-E, left-to-right?

Sorry :( I am very, very beginner.

@ hollinessification

that is a good diagram to use ...
left to right = thick to thin = low E to high e = E, A, D, G, B, e
