    It´s close. Buena onda implies good mood/ good intention, in this context it may even mean "i don´t want to upset you"/"don´t take ofence"

    I agree. Though I don't find the please in the original question?
    I'm telling you nicely, can you stop shouting.

    ¿puedes? can be translated sometimes into please but can you is more accurate.
