Looking for Help/Tips/Advice!

Hey! So I've been working on transcribing the song "Evila: Attack of the Perfect Reporter" for something like 2 years now, on and off. There isn't any sheet music available online and midis of the song are absolutely garbage so I have to transcribe it all by ear and this is really horribly difficult!

I'll make the score public so that you guys can listen to what I have so far. The arrangement isn't quite right, but I'm mostly trying to get the idea out first, and then I can fix it. It's the one that is titled with "copy" at the end.


Does anyone have any advice on how to transcribe this easier/faster? I've been following the advice that you figure out the bass-line first and then you flesh out the chords, but so far as I can tell, that's just as slow for something like this as doing anything else. 
Also, I'm completely self-taught! I can play one of every section of instrument so it gives me an idea of the limits of the sections and the tones, but I'm self taught in composition and transcription!

(I had this originally posted in a video game group, so pardon the weird language)
