Try doing one from Wes Montgomery. Body and Soul or Round About Midnight are both good songs with good solos.

You could also check Joe Pass' works, and if you're looking for a challenge, try transcribing John Scofield, I bet it would be a very valuable and insightful transcription.

If you want something easy try some kenny burrell. But if you want a challenge then yeah, try like joe pass or scofield.

Wes Montgomery along with a lot of others great jazz guitar players told in many occasions that he had transcribed many of the Charlie Christian solos.
