How do you pronounce Qiang?

It's like chiang, with a pretty aspirated ch sound. I tink.

Let me add.
Cai is pronounced tsi rhymes with pie, but with a ts at the beginning, kind of an exasperated aspirated sound.
Guo is like gwoah Um, gwo. With not quite the o of ocean, not quite the a of ah so.
I think a linguist could do this better.
