Blues session @ shimokitazawa-RPM

 

 

 

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

 

Today I was a session host at Simokitazawa-RPM.

The member is

HOUSE BAND:
Andy Kinlay – Vox / Guitar
Bill Benfield – Guitar
Juna Serita – Vox / Bass
Johnny Walker – Hammond / Piano
Lyle Carr – Drums

 

I had met Andy and Lyle before, but that was first meeting with guitar Bill and keyboard Joynny!!

 

To be honest, now I’m kinda sick….. So I was looking for the other bass player who can play blues well instead of me but I couldn’t find .

After all that was good because many nice musicians came to the session  and I really enjoyed !! Of course the host member was funny and awesome ; )!!

I’m proud that I could  play blues with many players ♪

When I was young , I wasn’t interested in blues music at all.  But now, I’m head over heels in blues and many people also think I’m “blues bass player”.   Very interesting, isn’t it? I’ve never expected like that .

(some people told me they think  I’m jazz player, but that’s wrong. I like listen to it but I’m suck at paying it.lol)

Playing blues is always fun ; ) Thanks everyone for coming to the blues session 😉

I really appreciate Shoka Okubo’s offering ’cause she let me know how to play blues .  She is my blues master.  If I didn’t meet her, my play style would be totally different….lol

And thanks Andy for inviting me to the jam session as a host member !!!  I really like his passion !!

And thanks all member. I hope I can play with you guys again!!

 

 

See ya!

Happy birthday to me

 

 

 

 

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

 

My dad brought crabs to me as present(?)

yeeeehhhhh ; ) !

I don’t have gorgeous osechi ryori but I feel so happy!!

And my mom made pumpkin cake for me instead creamy cake because I’m on a diet.

It’s healthy but natural sweet tastes !!!

Very matches soy latte .

And my fan gave me birthday present at the last gig!!!

woooooooooow it’s very useful!!!   I wanna try it in rehearsal studio with big bass amp sooner !!

 

And my grandmother gave me money ; ( !    I’m so poor still now in spite of that I’m not a student already…. lol

Thanks.

 

 

I took my parents to a omelette and rice restaurant .

I’m so happy that my mom looked fine . However my dad was saying that for him the volume is not good enough at all …..lol

He is quite overweight  , so I ‘m really afraid his health. I want him to take care and I told him it again and again but he has never accepted my suggestion ……

 

And my elder sister gave me a one-piece dress through my mom .

According to my sis, it is the  same with hers.

I’m looking forward to walking  by her side with the cloth .   ; )!

 

 

 

See ya.

Session Host @ Okachimachi Jam Session

 

 

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

 

Today I had a rehearsal with Gt&Vo Shoka Okubo / Dr Makotomo Sonohara / Gt&Vo Chihana.

It’s been a long time to see Shoka and Makotomo!!! I really missed them, so  I was going bananas.  Shaka Okubo Blues Project (Shoka+Makotomo+Juna)will have a concert featuring Chihana at Ginza Hakuhinkann for Yuya Uchida New Year World Rock Festival .

We’ll perform three songs together .  I need to consider which costume I will  wear because my body size probably changed…I’m “growing up”…. ; (

After the rehearsal, I was a session host with a guitar player Naoto Saito and a drummer Yuto Sasaoka at Okachimahi Jam Session .

Many musicians came there , thanks a million !

I played the drums only a song,too….. lol

It was terrible… I realized that I don’t have a sense of drumming….lol

These days  I was usually alone. I kind of like it but today I really enjoyed being with people and laughing well.

 

I feel happy that I can work as a musician even though I hadn’t been in Japan for several months .

I really appreciate it.

 

See ya.

KAHORI & Juna Serita@Strawberry fiels ,Komazawa

 

 

 

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

 

Today’s meal menu

breakfast

orange / smoothie (protein + soy milk + acai +  a bit of milk + amazake)

lunch

tomato / stir fried pork, bean sprout ,and egg/ natto with kimchi /

dinner

sake / fried tofu & eggplant / pumpkin soup /

 

 

 

Today I had a gig in Komazawa strawberry fields with singer song writer called Kahori.

Both we performed there as solo player.

 

It was the first time in a while that I perform alone.

Not only I used some backing track but also I performed just bass & vocal.

I was so nervous… maybe you could see it…lol

 

Today’s set list

 

1 Spark

2 Get the funk out ma face

3 Listen tiny voice inside my heart (original )

4 Isn’t she lovely

5 Power

6 Dishonest man(original)

7 Run for cover

 

The reason I chose  Isn’t she lovely is that when I was in the Philippines I taught a teacher to how to play the bass guitar using that. That’s why it is my memorial song ; D!!

 

And I wanted to challenge one more thing from my English studies. So I translated my original song’s lyrics  into Japanese to English.

This is Japanese lyrics video, but today I sang in English.

You don’t know everything about me   

It’s hard time to wait for you in the dark room alone 

You don’t know everything about me

Never be able to say something bad about what you do

 

I hate to be used to prepending not to know you

I want to  hold your hand and walk by your side 

According to the men who have to get back for their treasure 

it sounds selfish I do not mean it

 

You are everything you are    You are everything you are

Hold me tightly break me so  as not to be stuck on such you again 

Oh head over heels in love  Oh head over heels in love

My heart is full of you all the time  I can’t breath I can’t breath 

because of you

 

You might be angry with me 

that I have lost my pierce inside of the car

You might be angry with me 

I am realizing you want no-one to know that I’m his toy

 

How should I do to get his attention oh my

How should I do to be with the guy forever 

sleep and forget all of things sunrises  world would change 

I can find out you  then  would you love me? 

This time for sure

 

You are everything you are     You are everything you are

Hold me tightly brea me so as not to be stuck on such you again

Oh cannot get out his arms  Oh cannot get out his arms 

I was going to say Good Bye that is why I came to see him to the same place

 

Sharing some skins is only the way to see him 

but true and false are not easy to tell apart 

I’m fed up with your excuses  my words are may gonna hurt you 

Please shut my mouth with your kiss 

Just laugh it off as per usual 

because you are dishonest man

 

You are everything you are   You are everything you are

Hold me tightly break me so  as not to be stuck on such you again

Why don’t you always call my name?

Why don’t you say to me I  love you

Should I just wait for that you will do farewell to me?

 

You are everything you are  You are everything you are

Hold me tightly break me so as not to be stuck on such you again

Oh head over heels  in love  Oh head over heels in love

My heart is full of you all the time  

I can’t breath   I can’t breath because of you

Seeing you  seeing your face 

I am pleased , I am pleased with just only for that

 

You don’t know everything about me

The small comment you say as joke confusing me so deep

You don’t know everything about me

I am just waiting for you to come and spoon me again

 

I’m so done with type it. lol    Is it long…..?  In fact this song is over 7 minutes .

 

Another act Kahori’s stage was fantastic!!

She is only 18 years old… I’m pretty sure she’ll go far in the future : )!

And we had a session as encore .

・Konnyawa karasawagi

・Johnny B good

・Sweet home Chicago

・I’m ready

The guest drummer was Desire. I met her 1 year ago. Since then I was keen to play with her . So I am so happy today!

Desire is not only a great drummer,but also superb singer . I do love her voice.

 

My next gig is maybe December 31st as Shoka Okubo Blues Project.

Oh it reminds me. The following day January 1st is my birthday : D!!

 

I’m gonna list up some things that I want on the blog later  ♪♪ as a birthday present….  : D

Narita airport foods

 

 

 

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.
