I’ve never taken Where Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone very seriously, but apparently it comes from a legitimate waltz. It even has a B part! It’s actually a very pleasant waltz, and not too difficult. The most difficult thing is probably the timing, as it includes some broken rhythm and even some thirty-second notes. Don’t let thirty-second notes intimidate you; if you’re having trouble figuring out their timing, just treat them like grace notes. This is fiddling, after all, not classical violin, so do what works.
