"That doesn't seem too expressive" - said no one ever.  That's crazy.

On another note, it seems the arrow keys move the slides in 5 unit increments.  :-(  Is there some way to change this?

Good question! I found this http://laurashoe.com/2012/07/01/lightroom-quick-tip-slow-down-and-get-control-over-those-sliders/

Haven't tried any of these techniques however. I just do it manually.

This is ridiculously expensive but it does work very well once you have trained yourself to use it: http://www.rpgkeys.com/

I have a Logitech G510 keyboard with 18 x3 programmable marco keys. Is that what that RPG keyboard does? The video wasted minutes of time explaining why I need to have one, and none on how it works or what it does.
Also I use a Logitech G500 mouse. It allows you to add weights and has just about unlimited dpi settings with shortcuts to make the mouse more accurate so you can select those jumpy sliders.

I haven't used a mouse for over 15 years! Instead I use a trackball and for editing purposes, a Wacom tablet.
Same here, but really only use the tablet when I need really accurate selections (PS) or precise edge painting for masks.

I used to use the Kensington Trackball Expert, which I loved, but the mouse is faster, more accurate to the type of detail edits I do... I used to go back and forth until I dueled it out.
Tablet I use the Bamboo Fun for some fine-line transitional blend work.

Turns out you can toggle the up down arrow keys to go in single unit increments - if you first click on the digits showing the sliders settings.  This is better (for me at least) than holding the mouse button down and dragging.  It also gives me some hope that I can make my Shuttle a usable tool in my editing.  Thanks to everyone that contributed!
