ROSE WALTZ [1]. AKA and see "Country Waltz." Old-Time, Waltz. USA; Missouri, Nebraska. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. “The Rose Waltz”, sourced to Nebraska fiddler Uncle Bob Walters (1889-1960) is one of the ‘100 essential Missouri fiddle tunes’ according to Missouri fiddler Charlie Walden. One melody called "Rose Waltz" was recorded by Blind Joe Mangrum (1856–1932, Paducah, Ky.) for Victor in 1928 in the Nashville, Tenn., YMCA, backed by his frequent accompanist Fred Shriver on accordion. Victor chose not to release the cut, however.
