SAXON WALTZ. English, Waltz (3/8 or 3/4 time). G Major: C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. There are a number of 'Saxon Waltz' tunes in various keys in the first half of the 19th century. The Saxon Waltz was not a specific waltz step, but rather was a generic name for a waltz with a German provenance.
