I've seen a lot of YT videos that show you how to cut out an image from a photo that has a very generic or plain backgound, but not a busy background like this.

Does anyone have any suggestions beyond tracing the whole image with the magnetic lasso tool, which I have been doing?

Cutouts are best achieved with Layer Masks.  See video below.
