Rehearsal day

 

 

 

 

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

 

Today I had a rehearsal for Akane Tajima’s gig!

Recently I don’t play with singer song writer so often actually . So that’s kinda rare..♪

The band will perform day after tomorrow at Shimokitazawa club 251 !

Her all lyrics are fantastic .
She is singing about girl’s feelings. I exactly agree with her lyrics…; (

After the rehearsal we ate udon.

I came back to Japan but I’m really missing American hamburger… And also warm temperature, warm people, etc …

 

Btw tomorrow I’m gonna be session host at Shimokitazawa RPM.  That’s blues session probably.

I wanna play with many musicians, so I hope you will come !!

 

 

See ya

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.

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

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…!!

 

 

I’m sure I enjoy this trip!!!

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.

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.
