               Phantom of the Opera
               by Iron Maiden(Harris)
             Transcribed by Eddie Breslin
      (caladan@maths.tcd.ie)(ebreslin@unix1.tcd.ie)

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)
   Em                                           G      D

|--2-2-2--5-2-2--2-2-2--5-2-2--2-2-2--5-2-2---5-----7-------------|
|---------------------------------------------5-----5-------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

Then both guitars                                      repeat 3x
   F#m                         Gm

|--2-2-2--5-2-2--2-2-2--5-2-2--2-2-2--5-2-2--5--5--5--------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

The verses are made up of RIFF A, RIFF B and RIFF C.

        RIFF A - RIFF B - RIFF A - RIFF B
