    Yep. Literally drag your library to the external drive and then hold OPTION next time you open iTunes to be able to choose this new location. :)

    You can also select new location for iTunes library and then select consolidate library from menu bar.

    This way works very well. I just did this to transfer my music from my MBP to a WD portable drive.
