Steve Hackett has been releasing a series of small clips on his YouTube page (opens in new tab) to entertain his fans while we're stuck at home due to the Covid-19 outbreak. 

"I know most of us are stuck at home because of the virus," says Hackett. "So I thought I might do a series of short videos to try and cheer you up."

Most recently Hackett released a clip of himself performing the intro to the Genesis song Blood On The Rooftops from 1976's Wind & Wuthering album (Hackett's last with the band) on his acoustic guitar, which you can watch below.

Hackett's also been performing other Genesis material; you can watch him playing Horizons from 1972's Foxtrot, and other un-named classical guitar pieces.
