When I was high school student, I watched his instruction video on youtube and I was very impressed by his slap bass.  So he is one of my favorite bass players.

When I played the song at the gig, I was really nervous.lol    Maybe it will be uploaded on youtube by Poppin record later.

There were many solo section. We played a lot of solo play.  It was really good jamming.  And Thanks for buying my solo CD!!

 

I am looking forward to play with Rie again!!

I like her guitar play.

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

 

I had a gig of SHOKA OKUBO BLUES PROJECT at Koenji SHOWBOAT in Tokyo today.

I like the photo.(^0^)♪

 

Today’s acts were

Mitsuyoshi Azuma/ Panchi no kiita blues/ SHOKA OKUBO BLUES PROJECT.

All are trio band. Simple is best!! I always think so.

SHOKA OKUBO BLUES PROJECT was the first.


Many fan came there, really thanks.

We don’t have gig together in a while . I’m gonna miss Shoka and Makotomo…

 

We played new cover song.

The JAM of Larry graham.  I used a pedal for distort.

Then I was a little afraid whether it was too noisy. However it seemed no problem. And I got my play video. So I’ll upload on instagram later.

I played much slap bass! Maybe tomorrow , too. lol

 

Finally, all act played together as an encore. 3 cord blues.

I love Mitsuyoshi Azuma’s guitar play! Talking skills also great. He has a awesome sense of humor.

Recently SOBP’s drummer was Emi Yonekubo, so I performed with Makotomo for the first time in a while.

I like his sounds and personality.  We are like brother and sister.

Of cause I love Shoka and Emi,too!

I am lucky to met wonderful people like them.

do you like ”natto”?

 

 

 

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

 

 

Today’s my breakfast .

Kimchi and natto, eggplant,broccoli ,vinegary cucumber and chicken breast!

I eat natto almost every morning. Natto is fermented soybeans.

What kind of how to eat natto do you like?

 

Juan’s how to eat natto  BEST 8

No.8 natto & kimchi ・・・・・ both are good for the health. So I often chose the way , but it’s not SO yummy. If you want to enjoy TASTES , don’t need

No.7 natto &  vinegared mozuku seaweed ・・・・・when you try to eat this, don’t need some seasonings else. If you like vinegared mozuku seaweed , probably you like this way.

No.6 natto & grated Japanese radish ・・・・・grated Japanese radish has an enzymea. It helps your diet!

No.5 natto & thick wake leaves ・・・・・ I used to eat this often around 1 year ago. If that thick wake leaves are not seasoned with anything, use an attachment of natto.

No.4 natto & grated onion ・・・・・ It makes your body   hot! When you want to roll up one’s sleeves, try to eat. Especially I recommend to eat in morning.

No.3 natto & green onion ・・・・・ This it the most Orthodox way. Many people like it.

No.2 natto & Japanese plum ・・・・・ I have always liked Japanese plum. It is called UMEBOSHI in Japan.This is refreshing and good to eat especially in the summer.

No. 1 natto & a raw egg ・・・・・ I love it! Then natto will lose dietary fiber, but it has much protein!  If you have been building body, I recommend it! I have been building body,too!

I introduced mixed two now, but three aldo good.

natto & mixing Jew’s marrow & Japanese plum

good tstes and Jew’s marrow has many good healthy effects.

☆ natto & a raw egg & thick wake leaves

thick wake leaves also has dietary fiber. So this is good combination!

You name it…. If I found new ways , I’ll tell you guys again! And if you have other ideas, please share your idea on comment field. I also want to know.

 

 

 

By the way, I had a meeting at music restaurant called TRABECA in Shinagawa, Tokyo.



There are amp, drum set,piano , etc…..

Very good place. I liked.

There is candle on the table.

People can enjoy having great dishes and listening great music there.

I am not sure yet, but I might perform there with Shoka and Emi in near future.

That’s a good way to learn English

 

 

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

 

I was going to practice playing the bass guitar with the very small speaker at last midnight.

 

https://www.instagram.com/p/BXgAR0ogz8c/?taken-by=junaserita

I didn’t know that it’s so flexible!!!

I had old one like this before, but it was in flexible.

A fan gave me this.  Thanks to you, I’ll be able to much practice!

 

 

By the way,  I went take a lesson of English conversation this afternoon for the first time in a while.

I couldn’t go there last time and couldn’t reschedule  because my schedule changed suddenly. What a shame…

Recently I think about a good way to improve my English skills . The lesson I’ve been taking is group lesson, so we always use textbooks and imagine many situations.

When I want to remember new expression method of English , I can’t make it at all even if I read example sentences over and over.

However , I can remember them soon if I replace the example with my situation.

(ex.

textbooks : I can picture myself marrying a kind , intelligent guy.

My situation : I can picture myself marrying a middle aged man.

 

I like men of 45 years or over!!

Of cause I know that age is not all about results, but probably I am not interested in young man as a first impression. I feel that they are  kind of son for me.

I think if I have date with young man, I need to pay mind to him. What a drag.

I want to speak selfishly only a little and I want to have a parson who support me when I’m in some trouble.

That’s why my type is older man.

 

However , when I’m 40~50years old, maybe I’m big on younger man.lol

That’s crying for the moon.

A solo guitar player Rie a.k.a. Suzaku’s gig.

I have played with her 3times.

She is a great guitar player and great composer. Her songs are always dramatic. Metal, progressive , fusion, sometimes pops.. She is really talented.
And it will be first time I play with the keyboard player Kurumi  Fujioka.

I’m looking forward to the rehearsal for Thursday. 

 I need a lot of technic when play with Rie.  I have to practice seriously!!

By the way I had performance at the club in Ginza.

 

In my opinion, there are many rich people in Ginza .

Usually  I don’t go there at all . So I was a little afraid whether my fashion and hair ware okey there. 

I always think TPO(Time, Place , Occasion)!

Gym!!

 

 

 

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

 

I went to the gym in Roppongi,Tokyo today and I uploaded a new workout video on my Instagram.

The training is so hard! But I kinda like it.
The trainer always change the weight of dumbbell stealthily . I think it’s a good way because if I know that the wright is changed, probably I feel harder.
Sometimes it is better not to know.

 

And if you are interested in the gym, you can take a free trial lesson !

There is really delicious protein drink there always.

There are tastes strawberry, vanilla, lemon yoghurt, blueberry, cocoa, and mixed fruits juice.

I tried to have all tastes already. All were awesome. I couldn’t trust that it is protein juice because it is too delicious!!  Especially I love blueberry, vanilla, lemon yoghurt.

Anyway, you’ll see when you come to the gym.

Please send me a message if you are interested in taking a free trial lesson.

Session host – JAM SESSION Okachimachi.

 

 

 

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


I was a session host at Okachimachi JAM SESSION today.

 


The jam session called “curry club session”. I am not sure why it’s called so.

Maybe  there is curry in the menu that’s why it is called carry club.

 

Many musicians came there, Thanks!


We enjoyed playing soul,funk, blues, pops, you name it.

And there were many bass players . They inspired me.

 

The host drummer was Ai Otsuka. Recently we often play together.

I like her.^^♪♪ She is always bright and smiling. Really Organized person.

 

 

By the way  I uploaded new bass cover video on youtube!

It’s Marcus Miller’s song “Power”.

He is one of my favorite bass players.  I have gone to see his show at BLUE  NOTE ,Tokyo twice.

Check it out ! And if you like it, share the video please!

 

Bye

New web site.

 

 

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


Finally, my new web site was completed!!

I made it myself.(°▽°)

Frankly speaking, I wanted to choose this thema on WordPress.

But it was a little difficult to handle for me….(;ω;)
So I changed the thema.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now this.

 

 

 

Lol

It’s not cooler than last the theme , but I kind of like it . No problem!
Anyway, I am going to write my event schedule here in future.

Please check it out if you’re interested in me. (*´꒳`*)

☆ Juna Serita official web site ☆

 

By the way, I’m gonna study abroad in the Philippines from 17th September to 10th December.

Finally I told my grandmother to go to the Philippines for 3months today. I live with my grandmother since one year ago.
Actually I didn’t tell her when I went to foreign countries before. I just said ” I’ll back after a week ” when I left home. She heard that I wasn’t in Japan from someone and she was angry after I back to home.

I just didn’t want her to worry, that’s why I didn’t tell her about it. However, she wasn’t surprised at all when I told her for going to the Philippines .

Maybe she realized that already..
I think she likes me much. We don’t talk so often, but probably she always look at me well.
Of course I like her so much, too.
