How can I define file path in MediaPlayer.create() using variable? (Android)

Hello

How can I define file path in MediaPlayer.create() using variable?

I'am developing my first game for Android. My goal is to play different audio files during app execution. I have some files like:

-sound1.mp3 -sound2.mp3 -sound3.mp3

They are in my /res/raw/ project folder.

And I would like my code to be able to choose a file path.

For example (once not working):

for(int i=0; i>3; i++) { 
MediaPlayer mediaPlayer=MediaPlayer.create(getApplicationContext(), R.raw.sound + "" + i;
mediaPlayer.start();
}

Can anyone help me?
