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.

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!!!

 

See ya

Happy birthday to me

 

 

 

 

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

 

My dad brought crabs to me as present(?)

yeeeehhhhh ; ) !

I don’t have gorgeous osechi ryori but I feel so happy!!

And my mom made pumpkin cake for me instead creamy cake because I’m on a diet.

It’s healthy but natural sweet tastes !!!

Very matches soy latte .

And my fan gave me birthday present at the last gig!!!

woooooooooow it’s very useful!!!   I wanna try it in rehearsal studio with big bass amp sooner !!

 

And my grandmother gave me money ; ( !    I’m so poor still now in spite of that I’m not a student already…. lol

Thanks.

 

 

I took my parents to a omelette and rice restaurant .

I’m so happy that my mom looked fine . However my dad was saying that for him the volume is not good enough at all …..lol

He is quite overweight  , so I ‘m really afraid his health. I want him to take care and I told him it again and again but he has never accepted my suggestion ……

 

And my elder sister gave me a one-piece dress through my mom .

According to my sis, it is the  same with hers.

I’m looking forward to walking  by her side with the cloth .   ; )!

 

 

 

See ya.
