Federal bar

 

 

 

 

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

I went to Federal bar for seeing my friend Randy Emata’s performance!!

My friend (maybe I shouldn’t say so…. “my master” would be good!) guitar player Toshi Yanagi introduced him to me last month.

He is such a great keyboard player…!!!! I was really inspired by his performance.

 

suddenly he beckoned me to the stage .!

I’m so happy that I could play with him!!

Yeeeeey

It was fun time!!!  How fantastic city Los Angels is…….

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.

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………

day23~pronunciation~

 

 

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

Today, I couldn’t take pictures of meals because the battery died.

Oh , I uploaded new video on youtube for the first time in a while.

Larry Graham’s song, The jam.

I shoot the video when I was in Japan. I think it was September 13th . The reason I remember is that I shoot the video on the day of gig.

 

By the way, my Vietnamese roommate said to me that she is not good at listening to Japanese English pronunciation , but she can understand my English because according her my pronunciation is clear.

 

I was really surprised . In fact, I see that when I’m talking  about something longer, some teacher frowns  . It brought my opinion that my pronunciation is terrible.

At first , most teachers corrected my pronunciation every time. But  these days some teacher turned into that they don’t correct so often. Then I thought they realized  that I don’t have a sense of speaking correct pronunciation.  I’m not sure, however maybe I’m getting better….. ? I hope so.

SHOKA OKUBO BLUES PROJECT@SHOWBOAT Koenji

 

 

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.
