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

 

Today I had a meeting in the afternoon in Roppongi .

Talked about some plans and jammed a little .

I ate soki soba there, which is nice !! I’ve been to Okinawa only once for school trip . And I really liked Okinawa soul foods !! However usually I don’t have opportunities to have Okinawa foods . I’m so pleased that I could have it for the first time in a while ; )!! yum yum

 

After that I had a performance at Giga bar Tokyo in Minami-Aoyama.

Finally my repertories got over 100!!! YEY!!!! . (now I can play 112 songs on their song list.)

Which means , I need to learn left 140 songs tho …lol

It’s kinda hard but such a good chance to learn old school.

See ya!!

The host performance , every songs were kinda new for me . Part time lover( Stevie Wonder ) , honey ( Erykah Badu ) , etc..

The vocalist of host member is actually 17 years old ..! I just thought wow !!!!! She is so good , both vocal and personality.  I was very impressed by her.

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

 

Today I went to have sushi for lunch with the mature guy Steve!

He is the owner of the bar called Ikebukuro Somethin’ jazz club .

I often have jam session at the bar as host member .  Then we see each other but there is no time to talk enough .

I’m kinda introverted, so I always think something negative about myself .

Then Steve says

“You can do it , don’t worry anything , just have confidence in yourself , like ‘ I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita IN THE WORLD’ !!”

I have no-confidence in myself but his word always make my mind better.

That was a fun time ; )  I could get a nice motivation ; )!

 

 

See ya!!

yolis&Juna session@Somethin’ Jazz Club B2

 

 

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

I went to walk around in the morning this is because I wanted to listen to  my bass & vocal original song during I’m relaxed .

(Don’t worry , I’m decent : D)

Surprisingly , about vocal , It was much better to sing while playing the bass .  I haven’t expected .

About bass …. I’m pretty sure only playing the bass guitar would be much better than singing at the same time. I’m gonna record this song with a drummer soon but I just  came up with that I wanna take vocal lesson  at least once for my English pronunciation before the recording  ..lol

Anyway it ‘s so exiting ! I want you guys to hear it soon !

 

 

 

At the night  I had a jam session as host member with musicians!

vocal : yolis

guitar : Ryan Carter

Keyboard : Nobuhiro Takamoto

Drums: Masayoshi Kanazawa

 

We played both vocal songs and instrumental songs. And yolis was rapping ; ) I do love her rap!

My most favorite keyboard player called Gakushi also came there!! He is the best… I got a little nervous to jam with him because I’m a huge fun of him.. lol

 

Anyway thanks for coming everyone!!!

I and yolis will have a gig without any acts at Jiyugaoka Hiphen on June 24th!

Please book your schedule😘

 

See ya!!

I’ve never expected that I can meet  him again here♪

 

There was a upright bass , too.

I didn’t use on the recording but I was playing it during a break.

 

We played about 5 or 6 songs

I’m  happy that I played with those great musicians !

Wooooooooooooooooooooooooow I was sooooooooo missing tick meat hamburger..🍔😭😭💕💕💕💕 Finally I could meet again with my love …😌❤️

This is the beef hamburger, that was awesome, I was over the moon. 🌝

I’ll have a jam session as host member with the drummer Simon McDowell at Shimokitazawa RPM  on May 1st  .
