So...uhh...how do you pronounce 'Gita'? Strange question, but my gringo self has never heard it spoken before.

Is it GEE-tuh, as in rhyming with 'pita'?

According to Merriam Webster :

Pronunciation: "bä-g&-"väd-'gE-t&
Function: noun
Etymology: Sanskrit BhagavadgItA, literally, song of the blessed one (Krishna) : a Hindu devotional work in poetic form
