I think that a progress bar would be far more usefull then fast forward/rewind buttons. It's much faster to skip right to the middle of a song.
what if you dont have touchscreen?

I honestly hadn't thought of that, but if you have no touch screen there's no need to have fast forward / rewind buttons on the screen anyways. They would have to stay a keyboard shortcut of course.
I like the 10 % idea, but when you end up with very long songs. 10% can be quite a long time.
I propose that it would fast-forward 10 seconds at a time through one minute. Then speed up to fast-forwarding 30 seconds at a time and possibly even skipping a whole minute at a time. That way you have fine control of where you can fast forward too, and still let you scan through long songs quickly.
I want a progress bar too that I can touch and drag about. I like progress bars.
