Apparently in Arabic, there is no "guh" sound. I learned this a long time ago when I was ordering myself a silver necklace that was to say Gwen. I had the choice of them spelling it like J-wen or like Quin. I chose the latter.
Last week we called in take-out from Tandoori, the restaurant very near our house. I placed the order, they asked my name and I told them Gwen. They spelled it the best way knew how.

This instrument, my friends, is called an Oud or Aoud.....pronounced "ood". Don't you just love that name??
If you want to know what one sounds like, go here:
Hopefully I can post a video of him playing in a few weeks!
