Need A Little Pick-Me-Up Today? Try Following These Three Simple Steps.

STEP ONE: Find some headphones. Good ones.

STEP TWO: Sit down somewhere quiet where you won't be distracted.

STEP THREE: Listen to this.

Awesome, no? That's Bach's arrangement of the first movement of Vivaldi's Violin Concerto No. 9 In D Major (RV 230), which is pretty awesome in its own right (as you can see/hear HERE). Or you can listen to a harpsichord version or a guitar setting or the piano.

Or you can watch Dan Nesbitt's video, which is what made me think about it in the first place.
