Roots

Gut is thought to come from a fabricated IE “root” gheu or ghud (to pour). Old English guttas means intestines. CATGUT is the dried intestines or GUTS or animals that were used for chords in musical instruments like GUITARS.

Greek kithara (lyre, lute) is only a bridge to GeeYD (chord, artery, tendon or "sinew" of Genesis32:32). Kithara is said to the source of QiTROA$ (stringed instrument or "zither" of Daniel3:5), but the Aramaic term ought to be older. The GeeYD, sinew, joins bones together, and the G-D theme of togetherness is seen at GATHER and “TOGETHER.” Ayin-Koof-Dalet is to bind.  With the same guttural-dental music and meaning, the GeeYD or sinew binds muscles to bones. 


Branches

K[H]OODT is also a cord, sinew or thread  (Genesis 14:23); chayt is the Arabic.

After CHAETA  (see CHAETA) and CHITTERLINGS, more GUITAR terms like the GITTERN, CITHARA and CITHER twang on our ears. They sound like the Japanese stringed instrument, the koto, and the mysterious  GeeTeeYT that accompanied Psalms (like #8) in antiquity. Spanish guita is twine.
