AZERI, about the Ğ

i'm trying to learn azeri from the web and obviously some info are a bit contradictory.

about the Ğ, i read it sounds like HHRRR, like when you're gargling or spitting.
in a video though, the speaker didn't pronounce it at all in the word, as if it was a MUTE letter.

what's it all about?

Sağ ol! Giacomo.

(like here: is it sahr-ol or sa-ol?)

For learning: Azeri
Base language: English

    In general, it's like soft gargling, but sometimes, especially in spoken Azeri it's hardly heard (e.g. the phrase SAĞ OL may be heard as SAOL).
    Hope it's helpful. In case you some examples I could give some by skype.
