Yeah, that's perfect.  Check your Music properties.  It will read:
  • Link target: /mnt/DATA/Music
  • Location; /home/myusername
You've done it, well done  ;).

Remember, you treat the symlinks in your /home folder no differently to regular folders.  For example when you add some music.  You still go to: ~/Music not to /mnt/DATA/Music.  Now when you upgrade to Peppermint 8 next year  ::).  All you'll need to do is install the distro to your SSD.  Then redo the permissions and fstab.  Finishing by remaking the symlinks to the: /mnt/DATA on your HDD.  It so simple and so powerful.  Symlinks are really cool  8)!!
