This is a good suggestion from David but, dare I say, it could be improved with a little more effort.

The following suggestion removes one tag selection step, i.e.
from
Genre > Classical > Composer
to
Classical library > Composer

In short, it creates a new tag with a single value, which is added to the top index.

1) tagUpdate property
add filename and path, if necessary eg. /volume1/music/tagUpdate.txt

2) create above file, in the appropriate directory, containing following lines

@GENRE=Classical
+CLASSICALGENRE=Classical

Optionally, you can also remove the "Classical" entry from the GENRE index

@GENRE=Classical
-GENRE=Classical
+CLASSICALGENRE=Classical

I found a couple of "classical" variations among my files.
The tagUpdate file can be used to group them with additional lines

@GENRE=Classique
-GENRE=Classique
+CLASSICALGENRE=Classical

3) indexTags property
add CLASSICALGENRE=Classical:Classical library

Hope you find this useful.

This is a fantastic tip. One selection step may not seem like much, but on a small screen it makes a lot of difference with repeated use. Thank you!
