Hi Kirk,

maybe you can learn something from very good transcription examples in Richard Yates' "The Transcriber's Art".
It's not a simple how-to approach, the pieces he takes are upper intermediate to advanced level, but he describes well the
process of transcribing music for the guitar.

I'll echo that - an excellent book (it's published by Mel Bay). Such a pity that the Guitar Foundation of America's Soundboard no longer publishes his column.
