                Phantom of the Opera
               by Iron Maiden(Harris)

I've transcribed the album version (from Iron Maiden),
but wherever overdubs and the like are concerned I've
used the live arrangement.(And that's why Gtr II is
referred to as Adrian).

INTRO:
                                             repeat 3x
|-------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------|
|------4--4h5p4-----7--4-----5--4-----------------------|
|--5h7-----------5--------5--------5--4--5--7-----------|
|----------------------------------------------2~-------|
|-------------------------------------------------------|

THEN (RIFF C-during verses)
|--------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------|
|------4--4h5p4-----7--4-----5--4------------------|
|--5h7-----------5--------5--------5--4--5--7------|
|--------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------|

   Gtr II:

|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

   Gtr I:
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------7-7-7--8-8-8--12-12-12--13-13-13--15-15-15-------|
|--7-7-7--9-9-9---------------------------------------------------|

|--17-17-17------------17----------17----------17-----------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

THEN repeat the following several times.
   Gtr I (Dave)

   F#m                         Gm
