Dude, I seriously thought you were speaking Polish for a second. It's not that hard to speak correctly.

Waltz is usually in 3/4 or 6/8.

the bass usually plays in the first beat, and treble instruments play on the 2nd and 3rd beats with the rest of the chord.

The melodies are usually cheery and using a lot of dotted figures, followed by whatever figure is worth half of the last one.

heavy accents on one, light octaves or even octave+fifth (too lazy to figure it out) on 2 and 3. just play quarter notes and as long as you hit the downbeat it should sound ok.

turns out my girlfriend was just peeing on me.

First beat = octave
2nd and 3rd beat = fifth+octave double stop

Waltz is 3/4, but there is no particular scales or keys that are used more than any other in waltz time. for a guide to jazz waltz look at jazz sticky at the top where I explain how to play in 3/4, it's easy enough to carry over into other genres because the basics are the same.
