breakfast

smoothy (protein + acai+milk+soy-milk+green juice)/apple/

lunch: cream stew/avocado /almond /

dinner:dumplings

snack :vienna sausage /cheese /cream puff /

 

 

Today I went to Shibuya for buying new costume .

First, I couldn’t beat my appetite…..lol  So got in dumpling restaurant .

It is deep fried dumpling , deep fried chicken , and some vegetables …   These were nice but frankly speaking I prefer more natural tastes. (For me it was kinda salty.)

But other menu (baked dumpling and boiled dumpling )was fantastic!!

If I have a opportunity, I ‘ll come here again ; ) !!

 

overtime, I visited SHIBUYA 109 but there is  no my cup of tea and also expensive…

So I went to FOREVER 24 after 109.

There ware many clothes that I like!!

It’s so elegant !!!! Don’t you think so?

I’m a little worried whether I got fat too much or not…. ; (

Anyhow I can’t wait to wear my new costume ; )!!!!!

 

 

At night , I had a meeting with a guitar player Atsushi Shido for gig in April .

According to him, the gig ill be kinda metal music.

I’m looking forward to playing it because usually I don’t have a opportunity to play metal music on the stage. : )

 

Anyway, I have final gig in 2017 tomorrow .

Have a nice year everyone.

one more gig.

 

 

 Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Finally I updated live schedules  on my official website!!

I want to change some design in particular head picture . In fact score of people has told me to change it . Still ,unfortunately I don’t have the one which matches the size .

I’ve been  thinking about it for a long time but I’m not sure yet when I can get it.

Anyway, 2017 is finishing .  I have only one more gig as SHOKA OKUBO BLUES PROJECT on December 31.

The event called New Year Rock Festival is presented by Yuya Uchida. We performed there last year,too.

I really appreciate for inviting us again.

It will be on the TV I think as last time. So if you have some plans on the day already, you can check our performance later through TV program.

However , to be honest I want you to come there if possible…. of course ♡

See ya!!!

Bass battle with my hero Jino

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Today , I went to  Mobius Yotsuya for jam session.  One of the host members Kazui invited me . I have met him only once but he was very impressive  because of his cool bass playing. I realized soon that he loves Marcus Miller from his phrase. ; )

He is Kenji “Jino” Hino’s disciple . I was really looking forward to seeing Jino, too.(He is also the host member.)

It’s been about 1 year since I took his lesson in Ikebukuro  .   I’m a big fan of his fantastic groove.

 

When I arrived there , it was already full of people and the session was a blast!!

 

On my tern, I performed with Jino.

 

Slap bass battle Juna VS Jino……. !?!?

I wanna beat him someday….. ; (!!!

Anyhow I’m so happy that I could see his bass play for the first time in a while.

 

I need to practice more by the time I battle him next……!!

 

 

See ya ; )

Session Host @ Okachimachi Jam Session

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Today I had a rehearsal with Gt&Vo Shoka Okubo / Dr Makotomo Sonohara / Gt&Vo Chihana.

It’s been a long time to see Shoka and Makotomo!!! I really missed them, so  I was going bananas.  Shaka Okubo Blues Project (Shoka+Makotomo+Juna)will have a concert featuring Chihana at Ginza Hakuhinkann for Yuya Uchida New Year World Rock Festival .

We’ll perform three songs together .  I need to consider which costume I will  wear because my body size probably changed…I’m “growing up”…. ; (

After the rehearsal, I was a session host with a guitar player Naoto Saito and a drummer Yuto Sasaoka at Okachimahi Jam Session .

Many musicians came there , thanks a million !

I played the drums only a song,too….. lol

It was terrible… I realized that I don’t have a sense of drumming….lol

These days  I was usually alone. I kind of like it but today I really enjoyed being with people and laughing well.

 

I feel happy that I can work as a musician even though I hadn’t been in Japan for several months .

I really appreciate it.

 

See ya.

Today I had a gig in Komazawa strawberry fields with singer song writer called Kahori.

It was the first time in a while that I perform alone.

Not only I used some backing track but also I performed just bass & vocal.

I was so nervous… maybe you could see it…lol

 

Today’s set list

 

1 Spark

2 Get the funk out ma face

3 Listen tiny voice inside my heart (original )

4 Isn’t she lovely

5 Power

6 Dishonest man(original)

7 Run for cover

 

The reason I chose  Isn’t she lovely is that when I was in the Philippines I taught a teacher to how to play the bass guitar using that. That’s why it is my memorial song ; D!!

 

And I wanted to challenge one more thing from my English studies. So I translated my original song’s lyrics  into Japanese to English.

This is Japanese lyrics video, but today I sang in English.

You don’t know everything about me   

It’s hard time to wait for you in the dark room alone 

You don’t know everything about me

Never be able to say something bad about what you do

 

I hate to be used to prepending not to know you

I want to  hold your hand and walk by your side 

According to the men who have to get back for their treasure 

it sounds selfish I do not mean it

 

You are everything you are    You are everything you are

Hold me tightly break me so  as not to be stuck on such you again 

Oh head over heels in love  Oh head over heels in love

My heart is full of you all the time  I can’t breath I can’t breath 

because of you

 

You might be angry with me 

that I have lost my pierce inside of the car

You might be angry with me 

I am realizing you want no-one to know that I’m his toy

 

How should I do to get his attention oh my

How should I do to be with the guy forever 

sleep and forget all of things sunrises  world would change 

I can find out you  then  would you love me? 

This time for sure

 

You are everything you are     You are everything you are

Hold me tightly brea me so as not to be stuck on such you again

Oh cannot get out his arms  Oh cannot get out his arms 

I was going to say Good Bye that is why I came to see him to the same place

 

Sharing some skins is only the way to see him 

but true and false are not easy to tell apart 

I’m fed up with your excuses  my words are may gonna hurt you 

Please shut my mouth with your kiss 

Just laugh it off as per usual 

because you are dishonest man

 

You are everything you are   You are everything you are

Hold me tightly break me so  as not to be stuck on such you again

Why don’t you always call my name?

Why don’t you say to me I  love you

Should I just wait for that you will do farewell to me?

 

You are everything you are  You are everything you are

Hold me tightly break me so as not to be stuck on such you again

Oh head over heels  in love  Oh head over heels in love

My heart is full of you all the time  

I can’t breath   I can’t breath because of you

Seeing you  seeing your face 

I am pleased , I am pleased with just only for that

 

You don’t know everything about me

The small comment you say as joke confusing me so deep

You don’t know everything about me

I am just waiting for you to come and spoon me again

 

I’m so done with type it. lol    Is it long…..?  In fact this song is over 7 minutes .

 

Another act Kahori’s stage was fantastic!!

She is only 18 years old… I’m pretty sure she’ll go far in the future : )!

And we had a session as encore .

・Konnyawa karasawagi

・Johnny B good

・Sweet home Chicago

・I’m ready

The guest drummer was Desire. I met her 1 year ago. Since then I was keen to play with her . So I am so happy today!

Desire is not only a great drummer,but also superb singer . I do love her voice.

 

My next gig is maybe December 31st as Shoka Okubo Blues Project.

Oh it reminds me. The following day January 1st is my birthday : D!!

tomato/ orange / smoothie (protein+soy milk + a bit of milk + amazake+ acai)

Today I had Jeff Beck cover gig vol.2 at Akasaka Crawfish!

Gt. Isamu Houda

Key . Harunobu Okubo

Ba. Juna Serita

Dr.Daiji Okai

 

They are Japanese rock legends . I ‘m so happy to perform with them again.

Today’s my setting.

・Fender jazz bass

・cable

 

Simple is best I think…..

 

We performed around 12 songs. I do love Tal Wilkenfeld , so I listened to her sound again and again. After all her groove is superb. She is my idol.

There were many difficult sounds…. it would be my training…lol

Above all, I’m pleased that I could play the bass with other musicians for the first time in a while.

I was always writing 「Hey guys! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!」, but to be honest, I was afraid whether I can call myself “bassist ” because I didn’t play the bass guitar at all in the term of studies abroad .

Finally I’ve restarted my career as a bass guitar player  : D Hey guys! I’m  a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

A great guitar player called “Japanese Jeff Beck” was coming there as a audience…….His name is Hiroyuki Otsuki

And He sat in !! I never expected to meet him and perform together!!  I was going bananas!!

That was kick ass.    I had a wonderful night . : D

And thanks for gifts!!!

I’m on a diet but  I’m head over heels in love with sweets….lol   thanks!!

Next schedule(vol.3) is already booked!! March 21.

Would you come to see me ; D?

 

See ya!

New

 

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

 

I was writing music score all day.   When I do it , usually I have too much appetite…..

I thought I ate too much, so I went the gym late night.

 

I learned how to do it based the video on youtube and it is my first time to do it .

Watching workout video is my cup of tea lately .

The most difficult part  that I have muscle pain by workout is abs. Especially abdomen muscle.

So if you have some favorite workout for building abdomen muscle , let me know!

 

 

See ya.

Saw my friend’s gig

 

 

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

today’s meal menu

breakfast

banana/ orange / smoothie (whey protein+soy milk + a bit of milk )

lunch

natto+egg/curry / tomato / cabbage soup / stir fried pork and vegetables (eggplant / red bell peppers /shiitake mushroom )

dinner(inShimokitazawa  Kurosawa Shokudo)

Deep fried chicken set /

 

 

 

 

Today I went to see my friend’s gig(guitar player Hideaki Yamakado & bass player Ogan chan) at Simokitazawa Garden.

 

When I got there ,the band that I don’t know was performing.

”MunizO-無二三”

Seemed like it is it is very noisy . I expected my ears would be injured , so I was about to get out and wait at the entrance until head liner performance(my friend’s band).

But the drums sounds caught my hart , and also his physical performance caught my eyes perfectly .

The member is guitar & vocal / guitar & vocal / drums . Trio band. There is no bass guitar player.   Although ,one of guitar players were slapping almost all songs. I was wondering why he didn’t choose to play bass guitar instead of guitar.   Little by little I realized. The sounds they want to express need two guitar without question.

They are badass….!  I wanted to them earlier.

Holy shit.

This is their youtube video , but I’m pretty sure you never know their all attraction through only video.  I recommend to see their performance in real life.

 

Overtime, my friend’s band M.O.E started their performance.

In my opinion, the guitar player Hide is good at rock/ metal/ and so on .. and the bass guitar player Oganchan ‘s cup of tea is blues rock.

However the band performed exact Fusion !!   Sounds toooooo difficult !! lol      Get outta here…..  They are superb.

They had 60 minutes for performance but they played only 6songs since each songs are almost 10minutes…lol

I’m pleased that I could hear their solo section much.   Most songs were instrumental music but the bass player Oganchan sang only one song as a bass & vocalist. It was the best for me!! It beats me that when I hear blues music I feel so good.   I didn’t mean it but perhaps my heart is full of blues music after all because of Shoka Okubo…lol

It was great show. Thanks you guys!

I’m over the moon ’cause I could play my main gear Fender jazz bass finally!!!!

 

https://www.facebook.com/junaserita/videos/1211847635625971/

 

I brought my ESP bass guitar in the Philippines . Of course it is not bad, but never beat this.   I’m keen to sleep with it tonight….. Perhaps everyone doesn’t know how much I was missing it!!

 

Although I didn’t have enough time to play it today.

I thought I took vacation  until 17th   since I wanted to focus on preparation for my gig, but seems like I did not do it and my English lesson in Japan restarted today.

I’m attending group class ,but fortunately the student was only me. lol

The teacher is  same with before.  He was interested in my experience in the Philippines.

Surely I have many stories to tell him , so we had a livery conversation.

 

Teacher「Is there any difference between Japan and foreign countries?」

Juna「Uhh  maybe there are many differences ….  but the things I was really surprised is  most foreigners think Japanese women are bitch . The reason is that they thought so from Japanese adult videos . Of course I told them “No” because it is just business.  The process is  depends on the person. : ( 」

Teacher 「Ahh,  I think not bitch.  Some people think just “EASY”.」

Juna「Oh.. I see. 」

 

 

I don’t wanna be easy…. lol

 

We had talked  for an hour without pause.

To be honest, I was always nervous when talk to him before  because I couldn’t understand what he said sometimes and also I couldn’t express what I want to say  .  However today, I almost  understood what he said . And even if I couldn’t understand, I can ask him in English and he will explain in other word.

And the reason I picked up the conversation topic on the blog in spite of the fact that we also had other topics  is that I don’t mean to like dirty topic, but I was just happy that now  I can debate like this private topic in English. : D hehe

He was very surprised at my improvement .

After the class, the stuff recommended that I transfer two levels higher class.

 

It sounds like very difficult…..

 

I ‘ll just bite the bullet .

 

 

 

see ya

 

 

Today’ s workout

・3sets of 30 squats

・3sets of 15 bulgarian squats

・3sets of 40 back kicks
