Paul Van Arsdale recorded Grandpa’s Waltz on his Dulcimer Heritage album along with a book of the tunes.  Folk Legacy records, 1983 on Vinyl.
 
It looks like Nicholas Hawes was the person who put this project together.  The info on Grandpa’s Waltz reads
“Paul learned this beautiful, spare melody from Jesse Martin, and, for the purpose of this recording, he named it in his honor.  I have been unable, thus far, to find this waltz in any printed collection.  It is possible that it is an original dulcimer composition-it’s hard to imagine it sounding as good on any other instrument.”
 
FSA-87 Dulcimer Heritage  Key of D
 
Paul learned many tunes from his grandfather, Jessee Martin.  He admits in the booklet that he does not know the names of all the tunes he learned.
The music in this booklet takes me back to my early days of learning tunes.  The music is written out but there are no chords notated.  Today so much easier to figure this stuff out.
