BHÍOMLÓG, AN (Gimblet). Irish, Scottish; Slip Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody appears also in Walsh's Caledonian Country Dances (Book III), No. 20. See also note for "The Gimlet." A gimlet is the name of a pointed tool for boring, although the name might be analogous and used to refer to a catchy melody (i.e. one that 'bores a hole in your mind'), like 'maggot', 'fancy', 'whim', etc.
