How can I build an iTunes Library on an external drive?

I read several articles, including this one on MakeUseOf The Easiest Way To Move Your iTunes Library To An External Drive Read More .

What I want to do is not have the library on my Mac in the first place. I want to burn new music directly through iTunes onto the new hard drive. Is it as simple as changing the location when I upload? Will the files that would be in the Library still be held there so it will recognize my music files?
