Hi, I am a senior with limited computer skills. I am not sure how I would create a library with Musicbee. I do currently have an iTunes library but would love to try something new. Would I be able to easily import my iTunes library to Musicbee then add to it as I go along? Is this something that would be worthwhile for me? If so are there basic instructions to do so. Any help would be much appreciated. TIA

The site above talks about doing exactly what you're looking to do.

When you first install MB, you will be prompted to create a library.  If you've already done this (created a blank library), you can import your existing iTunes library into it by going to File->Library->Import->Import from iTunes

If you haven't created a library, you will go to File->Library->Create New Library and create the library (the library is just the set of folders and files that holds information about your music files), then  File->Library->Import->Import from iTunes once your library is created.
