Can you explain exactly what you mean? Try to indicate what you want to do with the script.

With 3 music files, I assume you mean 3 media libs?
As they are also pretty small (probably smaller than your global history settings) I would apply the same settings, but maybe use the 'LastTimesPlayed' or 'LastRecentlyPlayed' mode. This will assure, that the least times played tracks first, but give for the same values a random order, which is much better than pure Sequential, as in your first requirement.

That requirement is the pure "Sequential" mode!
Example (with 9 tracks):
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,1,2,3...
Is that really what you want?, as this is typically very predictable and boring and even often being noticed by the listener.
