The Europeans added frets to the oud and called it a "lute" - this derives from the Arabic "Al'ud" (literally "the wood")

That scratchy noise reminds me of a Monty Python sketch.
Man walks into record shop 'Have you got World War 2 noises'.
Assistant: 'Is that by the Ronettes'
Man: 'No the French and the Germans'.

Thanks Joe. Your harp set inspired me to design a guitar with a different string for every note. I haven’t done the math but it will have many necks. I’m pretty sure the guy in Cheap Trick will be interested.
