Trapped Under Ice is a difficult song on the guitar. it has a fairly hard riff (especially the YO YB RB YB part.) and short but crazy solos. It is best to save star power on the intro for the first solo, catch up in rock on the riff, try to get through the solo after the first chorus, accumulate star power until the solo after the bridge. if you can get that far, you should be able to finish the next verse and chorus. On the bass, it's not much easier; the rhythm is very fast, so be wary of that. By now, you're probably thinking, "What about the drums? Is the song fairly easy on those?", or "I'll bet the drums aren't any easier." If you're thinking the former, you've probably never heard a Metallica song before. If you're thinking the latter, you're thinking right. The song features a very fast beat, so watch out. The only instrument the song ISN'T hard on is the vocals; just make sure you're singing at the right pitch and on time, and you'll be fine.
