Many titles are of the form "So and So's Reel. a Strathspey". In these cases, I've taken the tune-type out of the title, leaving it as "So and So's Reel", or whatever, and set the type into the "Rhythm" field. Any rhythms that are not definitely stated in the original (ie, that are RR's guesswork) are indicated with a questionmark. And, yes, "Reel. a Strathspey" does happen.
