Thanks Uwe, I have been using tuneR already, but I have been unable to
extract the peaks out of the periodogram.  I'm trying to follow along

	Author = {Wieczorkowska, Alicja and Synak, Piotr and Lewis, Rory and
Ra{\AA}, Zbigniew W.},
	Publisher = {Springer},
	Title = {Extracting Emotions from Music Data},
	Year = {2005}}

but need the harmonics to calculcate most of the variables they are using.
