Transcribing chords or exact guitar parts note for note might be difficult especially if there are many studio overdubs or instruments being played at the same time.

Sometimes you could tinker with the left and right channel mix and find ways to ISOLATE THE INSTRUMENT you are transcribing straight from mp3.

If you're lucky, you could also try to secure a copy of the original studio multitracks especially if the instrument you are transcribing is heavily submerged along with all the other instruments and this will greatly simplify things and reduce transcription errors in most cases.

Use software to slow down fast sections if necessary.

You can compare with someone else's transcription.

Or you can download a powertab/guitar pro file to listen to and transcribe without reading it first. The same with MIDI if you have a sequencer.
Learning a new cover song? Feel like recording it? And have people listen to it? See the CATPM thread in the Pit. Here's the user group
