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

 

I really enjoyed NAMM show 2018!!

First, I performed at D’Angelico guitar booth with Matt Schofield and Tomo Fujita!!

Thanks Matt for inviting me to perform there !! I ‘m so glad that I could play with you guys again!!!

And the following day, I performed at Vemuram booth with Adam Miller!! I really like his guitar tone!!

Then I borrowed basses from Freedom guitar and MAJESTE!!

Both of them are so nice!! Some people were interested in not only pedal,but also bass guitar!!  Because of these great products…♪!!

Thanks Adam !! I hope see you and play again this year in Japan or somewhere!!

 

And the last day, I and Emi performed at ATV booth. This booth is for electric drums. But there is a person who making bass guitar , so they invited me to demonstrate with Emi.

The jamming with Emi is always fun!! I was just enjoying in spite of that I usually don’t play 5strings bass.

guitar center

 

 

 

 

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

 

Today my friend Andro from Australia invited me to go to Guitar Center in West Hollywood.

That was a huge guitar shop… lol

Of course there are many bass guitar,too.

 

We enjoyed trying.

He recommended that I play the expensive bass guitar.

Uhhhh   It’s nice, but I prefer my fender jazz bass ;  )!

Overtime, I was so hungry .  We ate Tacos♪♪

It may be my first time to eat tacos …?  I like hot testes but it was a little difficult to handle because I put too many things…lol    I like it ♪♪

 

And after parting , I went to The Study Hollywood by myself for jamming .

Some singers sang songs, but the others were just rapping.

I was so nervous but I sat in .  Everyone was very sweet.

Thanks .

I need to learn more abut LA style jam sessions.

Baked potato

 

 

 

 

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

 

Today, first I went to a church called INTER NATIONAL CHRISTIAN CENTER because my brother bass player Lin Yuki performed there .

 

It was a big church , I  hadn’t expected like that.  According to him, this is  Nigerian church . I liked their music so much.

And after taking nap, I went to the Baked Potato to see a Japanese guitar player Toshi Yanagi.

That was Armand Sabal-Lecco’s live show.

I didn’t have much information about him but I was very impressed by him. Feels like he’s just doing his shit !! Badass bass player.

And I shared with a guy who had a seat next to me. He is a guitar player called Polo . Is from Japan but now he lives in LA with artist VISA.

It was so delicious ♡ Thanks Polo!!   but I can’t trust that these are one person’s shere…lol   so big…lol

 

And I’m so happy that I could meet the awesome guitar player Toshi Yanagi finally !!!

I really liked his bending!!! And he is not only the great guitar player , but also nice guy!!!  Thanks for your kindness!!

 

And I ran into a dope bass players Robert Trujill from Metallica!

 

I’d never expected that I can meet him there.

 

And midnight , I went to Seventy 7th to see Loud as Funk.

I can’t help dancing  cause of their fuckin’ cool groove!!

 

I might come here every week .

Some musicians sat in .

 

 

There are too many nice musicians here…. Fantastic………

Studio jam

 

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

Today was also superb for me!!

I went to  a studio in Hollywood for jamming.  I went there with Uber, but I lost after getting out the car…. lol

A person who walking on the road told me how to get to the studio. Thanks man! He saved me.

When I arrived there , the jam is already started . There are many fantastic players in the room … I was wondering why I’m here…lol

He is one of the greatest bass players called Will Rob.

I just met him today. When he played my fender jazz bass, the sound was totally different…!!!!!! Oh my goodness… I really like his groove.!!

I had some sessions , but I have only a video.

Singer night

 

 

 

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

 

The shared house that I live in LA  is so nice.   There are many kinds of people .

The best funny guy from India often recommend it to me . lol

It is not so special… but I feel that I want a little more. lol

 

Today I went to a night club in Hollywood  to see live performance. It it called Singer Night.

 

 

I really enjoyed that.

https://twitter.com/JunaSerita/status/954824042808188928

 

Sorry my camera seems drunk … That’s why the video is shaking ..

 

The sounds are very good both yesterday and today because I could hear all instruments . I feel it is not usual in Japan actually ….  The priority is totally different.  Surely I can understand the reason,too.

To be honest I prefer here .

 

See ya.

Came to LA

 

 

 

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

 

Today I came here in LA!!   Thanks Lin!! He’s a badass bass guitar player.    He picked me up at the airport to my accommodation ; (!! So helpful!!

 

And he took me to a nice hamburger restaurant!!

Woooooow I’ve never eaten Hamburg like this  !

I’m really satisfied with it!!!

And I bought some things at the nearest supermarket  for breakfast . I usually drink soy milk every morning in Japan but this time I wanna try coconut-milk ; )

 

At night I went to Hollywood to see awesome musicians performance !!!

They doesn’t have songs. Just jamming.  Frankly speaking , that was totally different with Japanese style….

 

It was fantastic… I can’t explain with my word.

And I was so happy that I could meet a bass guitar player Ethan Farmer there.  I love his groove so much…!!
