If you've never done it before, I'd start really simple - I'm talking simple like 'Happy Birthday' and 'Twinkle Twinkle' simple...

If you're a bit more confident than that, first thing I ever transcribed by ear was the Paranoid solo, closely followed by Boys R Back - Thin Lizzy

Greenday =P

also, if you can figure out what key it's in after the first section, and the band actually uses keys, then you can get the rest a lot easier.

I never bothered to learn to play it lol - I just transcribed it (kinda - some of the rhythms were a bit dodgy), let my teacher crit it and then forgot it
