Volume control

I would like to make a volume control for songs. I tried examples from this forum but I can’t get them to work does anyone have an Fla that I could look at. Also if anyone has a simple mp3 player with volume control/ play ect that they would like to share that would help even more. If I only have three songs is it best to load them as external swf’s or use xml???
