I come and see the feel good friday posts, I just don’t normally post on them. I am a lurker ;).

I love this, but my favorite so far was the little kids and their guitars!

Love love love this. It’s so great to see that beauty and grace still exist in our instant gratification world.

I LOVE Feel Good Fridays! I had to go back & watch it over a couple times as I read the comments to catch that yes, it’s the same guy, and WOW! How can he toss the bow & catch the bow? Neat editing trick. I like to Bow Cam, too.

I love the cello, such a deep throaty sound!

It won’t load for me so I am going to watch it on YouTube. But I like the feel good Friday posts. My favorites so far were the cat playing with dolphins, and the music player with squares that light up. Thanks Admin. Have a good weekend.

That was absolutely beautiful. I love how he was playing each cello in a different way! The talent!

So beautiful! Thank you for sharing and making our Fridays a little brighter.

The cello is my favorite instrument! I wish I could play it but I have no musical talent at all.

Jessyy July 15, 2011 at 4:19 pm

This is a great way to finish my day with.

I am not one normally for classical music, but I really liked this.

Snowy July 15, 2011 at 4:24 pm

Hey, I’m here every Friday. :) I think you’re just more likely to get people talking about things that have some controversy to them, rather than things they think are cool.

And I love this piece; I hadn’t seen this video before. This piece can be very dark or fairly light, but it’s the first time I’ve seen it turned into something downright happy. Thank you.

Let me also recommend Giovanni Sollima’s “Terra Aria” as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z7Eid_SVCc

What??? Less traffic on Fridays? I love this site and read every post, but my husband likes me to wait and watch the FGFs when he’s around because he enjoys them so much. I would have thought they were the favourites of the week!

Mmmmm, cellos….

I must admit though, that I can’t help but hear the voice of one of my music teachers declaring vehemently that “if there are no vocals, it’s not a SONG!”

Holly R July 15, 2011 at 4:47 pm

To be honest, I usually get cranky when I see a “Feel Good Friday” post. I come here to read etiquette issues, not happy stuff I can find on other sites. That said, this was really cool.

Kat July 15, 2011 at 4:59 pm

Very pretty sounding! I like how they’re all rocking out. : )

Rachael Randolph July 15, 2011 at 5:18 pm

I like feel good Fridays. they make me feel like we can make it.

Dina July 15, 2011 at 6:12 pm

I used to play the cello. Now I’m wondering why I ever stopped.
Thank you so much for sharing this :)

Rachel July 15, 2011 at 6:16 pm

I visit the site almost every day, but I rarely comment. I did enjoy today’s Feel Good Friday. I love string instruments. I’ve always been jealous that my sister plays the violin so well. Unfortunately, my talents lie in another direction.

I really liked the technique that one of the players used (piccaco – plucking the strings instead of using the bow), I never knew that you could do that. This was a real good Feed Good Friday piece.

bharris July 15, 2011 at 6:36 pm

Whoah! How’d he do that?! That makes me want to learn the cello!

coralreef July 15, 2011 at 6:45 pm

So may sounds and feelings from the same instruments! Thank you, it’s a nice way to end the week.

Snowy July 15, 2011 at 6:55 pm

@Holly I’ve come in here on a Friday thinking it was Thursday and been let down, but the Feel Good Friday I found made up for it. (I wouldn’t mind having both on Fridays; I love this site so much.)

Deb July 15, 2011 at 7:07 pm

Breathtaking. Had to share…it was awesome!

Bethany July 15, 2011 at 8:05 pm

I love the feel good Fridays. You’ve had some great flash mobs!

Reply

Sarah July 15, 2011 at 8:43 pm

I love your feel good Fridays. I loved the piano stairs one, and the flash mob, the muppets… my young daughter enjoys it when I share them with her

Reply

Angie July 15, 2011 at 8:47 pm

I don’t always have time to watch the Friday videos, but have enjoyed the ones I’ve seen. Hope the comment count goes up with the contest!

Thanks for the beautiful music at the end of a very stressful week.

Kali Ravel July 15, 2011 at 9:02 pm

My favourite Feel Good Friday post was either the muppets or the SLS videos. Anything with Bohemian Rhapsody in it, really.;p

Reply

Amanda July 15, 2011 at 9:50 pm

I literally had to remind myself to breathe while listening to this – so very beautiful!

Reply

DocCAC July 15, 2011 at 10:02 pm

I am one of the lurkers. I only occasionally post, but this was beautiful. Made me enjoy Bach (which I must admit I usually don’t do). My very favorite “Feel Good Friday” is the dolphins and the cat (which is now private :-/).

Lynda July 15, 2011 at 10:11 pm

I *love* Feel-Good Fridays! It’s just the lift I need at the end of another long week, thanks for doing this.

Phyllis July 15, 2011 at 10:40 pm

While the music was fantastic, I actually loved the “bloopers” best!

Rani July 15, 2011 at 10:41 pm

I’m always here lurking. ;)

Jen Wise July 15, 2011 at 11:22 pm

This is lovely, and I’m so glad to see a video that’s all about the music! Flash mobs are fun, but I don’t enjoy the vids as much when it’s a really good piece of music, because then I just wish it were more like this video.

Cate July 15, 2011 at 11:25 pm

I’ve been lurking for years O:)

Ginnie July 15, 2011 at 11:31 pm

Just found you while checking the spelling of etiquette. I’ll have to come back and spend more time.

Like many, I usually just lurk. I had to watch with the sound way down as my baby is asleep for the night, but it looks beautiful! When I was 10 days overdue with my baby, I went through and watched all the feel good Friday posts to keep myself distracted, so I definitely appreciate them.
