Hi guys,
Is there a way to make a slider Biased or 'Heavy'. What i mean by this is if you move the slider nearer the left side its more accurate then as it slides to the right side it jumps up the numbers more:

\/----------------------                  is 0
----------------------\/                  is 100
--\/--------------------                  is 4(2%)
---\/-------------------                  is 6(4%)
-------------------\/---                  is 80(85%)

Does this make any sense? Its quite hard to explain. Basically i have a slider with 1000 on and its quite difficult to use because most of the time they want to select low values e.g. 2,4,6,8,10.
Or would it be possible to make the ticks go up in 2's to 20, then 5's to 100, then 10's after that?
private void sliderChanged(javax.swing.event.ChangeEvent evt) {                               
    button1.setText("Number " + slider1.getValue());
