I only learned White Rose Waltz recently when I taught it to one of my students.
It’s a beautiful tune, and I really like the way it transitions from the Key of D to Bb and then back again.
I just finished playing for a wedding today at the Wild Basin Lodge in Allenspark, CO (near Estes Park), and I got the photographer to record my fiddle tune while I was still in my tux.
This recording demonstrates one of the ways that Fiddle Tune a Day has made me uncomfortable this year. When I record a tune, I really want to play it beautifully, and I want the notes I play to be the notes I intended to play.
In this recording, I totally botched one of the chords I played near the beginning, and today was a one-take opportunity, so the way I played it in that one take is they way it is on record for all of eternity. And, uncomfortable is good, I guess. 😉
There isn’t much on this tune online, (there are a couple of other tunes by this name as well). I did find a recording of Aly Bain playing it without attribution, and notation referencing England. So if you have information to contribute, I would love to hear it.
