Or rather https://www.picoreplayer.org/how_to_add_usb_hdd.shtml - which

I don't think this describes what the OP wants, his (friend's) USB drive is connected to a PC, NOT to the RPi.

I don't see much point in having a RPi as a music server if you store the music on a USB drive attached to a PC, which would need to be running.
