It's all about practice. The more you do it, the easier it will become. There's really no tips I can give you besides do it often and practice with a variety of styles. Don't just transcribe Metallica songs, try some piano music. Give a Vivaldi piece a try. Just remember never to limit yourself and keep your horizons open.

This belongs more in Musician Talk then here but it is all about practice.

You will suck for a long time and it will take a lot of effort to make even a little bit of progress but it's definitely worth it.
