ARON'S MAGGOT. English, Country Dance Tune (cut time). England, Northumberland. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC. A maggot was a longways country dance from late 16th century England, often dedicated to a personage whose name appears in the title. The term comes from the Italian magioletta and means a plaything, or a slight thing of little consequence. Another meaning for maggot was as another name for a dram, a small unit of liquid measure.
