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

 

I had a gig with a clarinet player UI and a pianist Michiyo Yamaguchi at Yagai suijo ongakudo in Ueno, Tokyo today.
It was really beautiful day . Maybe I got a little sunburnt.

 

The event is the festival called SUMMER TONIC 2017.

We performed 4 songs there.

1. Feel like making love

2. Miyako no aki

3. Night view

4. Shikisai no blues

Just 4 songs, but there was bass solo every song.  Two cover song and two original song. These are kinda jazz.

Actually , I’m not so good at jazz. However I think I could better performed.✨

Thanks for coming.☆

We enjoyed eating while break time.

Yummy♪♪

 

After the gig, I went to Akasaka CRAWFISH to see my friend’s gig.

The leader&vocalist Richard invited me, but it is the first time I meet him.lol   We knew each other on Facebook.

And I know other musicians. They are great .

The gig was really cool. I loved it .

The bass guitar player was Yusuke Morita. I’m a big fan of him!! I was looking forward to seeing his play. I have seen him at a jam session. Then I was really impressed by him.

When the break time, He talked to me .

『 Hey, you are Juna,right? I often watch your videos of playing the bass guitar and workout on instagram.!』

Lol ..  I didn’t know that he know me. Really happy♪♪ workout always makes me happy♪♪

I had a great day. !!

Actually I had a teeth pain in the afternoon, it was a hard time. However when I was playing the bass guitar at the session, I forgot that I have the pain.

The jam was so fun! I miss you guys ’cause I won’t be able to see you guys for a while.

Oh, suddenly a vocalist talked to me in English there.  I’m sure that he is good at English , He always sing English songs and posts the comment in English on my SNS . I couldn’t response so quickly. I was embarrassed.lol  However It was a good practice for me, thanks. He is always smart and has a good sense of humor. My good friend.♪

 

And fan gave me foods , protein , cute T shirts  as presents.

This is very popular sandwich among women. I’ve never eaten this, but I have just heard and watched about it .

It was difficult to eat elegantly because it’s so big. But very healthy and delicious!! I liked it.

And T shirt and protein!!

I heard that the protein is the most delicious  as far as he knows. When I came back to home, I tried! Exactly, it was fantastic!! I was very impressed.  I’ll treasure it.

I don’t have the photo of T shirts, but the shop name is…

JUNA PARK

Otoyokocho in Ueno

 

 

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

I had a gig with some nice guitar players at Otoyokocho in Ueno, Tokyo today.

I perform with them 5 songs.

Oh, did you see the video on my twitter?

Do you know the song called Marunouchi sadistic by Shiina Ringo? We played this song today’s gig. So I was practicing it in the morning at home.
When I was young, I liked her so much! Of cause , now ,too.

She is one of the most popular singers in Japan. I sing her song often when I go to karaoke. I’m happy to play this song.

I look like very fun!! I was surprised because I always play the bass guitar seriously at gigs (almost no smile).

Exactly I was fun. It was nice jamming.

 

Anyway, thanks for coming!

A fan gave me a present!! It’s curry. All looks yummy.

I love curry….♪♪

I’m not sure, but he seemed to be filled with tears…  I just hope his happiness.

 

I took a video myself today’s gig. So if it’s interesting, I’ll upload on my twitter,Instagram and Facebook page later.

 

Good night.

Compared with someone

 

 

 

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

 

I feel good today but I have diarrhea without stomach ache .

Losing weight is good, but losing the protein I had is bad!!! I don’t wanna lose my muscle mass.

 

I went to a lesson of English conversation in the evening.

There were 3 students including me in the class.

Other students had better English skills than me.

It’s important to compared with previous myself but it’s also important to compared with someone.

I need to study English more seriously…

 

By the way, I have a gig tomorrow with some nice guitar players at Oto yokocho in Ueno, Tokyo.

It’s not a band, don’t have rehearsal . So probably it’ll be kind of jam session.
I’m looking forward to the gig because I’ll perform some guitar players I’ve never met.

See you tomorrow.
I think about tomorrow’s costume.♪♪

Mateus Asato guitar clinic

 

 

Hey guys!! I am a bass guitar player Juna Serita!

 

Today , I went to a guitar clinic of Mateus Asato at MESAR HAUS,Tokyo.

He is one of the most popular and famous guitar players in the world.

This is the first time I watch his guitar play.

There were many young musicians(students of MESAR HAUS ) there.  I thought that I look like a student still now, but it seems to be difficult.  Compared with the students, I am older after all. However I don’t want to forget young feelings.

Anyway the guitar clinic was really nice. Playing guitar also, talking also. I was really impressed by his play and personality.

If you don’t know him, please check it out!!!

 

And I run into my favorite guitar player Kyoji Yamamoto there.

He is always sweet. I didn’t expect to could see him today, at all. I want to perform with him again.

 

After that I and a tour stuff Kris and a guitar player Natsumi took  photo sticker at Shibuya .

Our faces was so different.lol  It’s too photogenic .

Natsumi is the same age with me.

★GIRL GUITAR PLAYER NATSUMI★

Actually , she is a great guitar player!  Please check it out,too.

 

We enjoyed dinner together.

I had a good day. Thanks for inviting me Kris!!

My favorite Smoothie lately

 

 

Hey guys! I am  a bass guitar player Juna Serita!

 

I’m big on this smoothie lately.

I always drink a cup of smoothie every morning.

It is made from

water / soy milk / amazake sweet drink made from fermented rice / powder for green soup / protein powder tastes cocoa / asai powder /

Most people misunderstand that powder for green soup is so nasty. However it tastes like green tea.

And it is mixed with amasake and protein tastes cocoa, so it will be sweet. This smoothie tastes like sweet green tea au lait. Very yummy,but very good for the health and dieting.

A fan gave me this asai powder as a present.

Asai is a super food.

It has many polyphenol,calcium,dietary fiber, and vitamin, amino acid.

I am happy to eat this, THANKS!!

 

And this is my usual lunch.

cabbage,broccoli, natto(ermented soybeans) and kimchi, fried salmon.

Probably many people eat much foods in lunch time, but I always eat much dinner more than lunch.

When I have dinner myself, I always have it at around 6 O’clock . However usually I go to bed at 3 A.M.  I have long time from dinner to go to bed. I will hungry then….  That’s why I eat much foods in dinner.

I don’t want to be stressed out.♪♪

Much stress is enemy of dieting!
