Hey guys! I am a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!
I uploaded last gig’s video on instagram.
Jeff Beck’s song “Cause we’re ended as lovers”. This song is very popular with the great bass solo of Tal Wilkenfeld. I also love it.
I’m sure that we’re gonna play this song next time again. Please come on the 10th December .(^0^)
By the way, I’m at Narita airport with elder sister and mother.♪
There were good dishes in N’s COURT. I couldn’t choose easily.
Well, I decided it!! Mine and sister’s.
I ate a hamburger for the first time in a while.♪
The meat is pretty big! I love protein!!
And my mother chose the Japanese dish called Ochazuke（rice with tea poured on it） .
She looked happy^^♪
Anyway, I have to go now.
I’m very looking forward to learning English and different culture .
See you later.

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.

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