When making adjustments to the volume fader in a GarageBand track, even slight movements cause a large change in the volume’s value no matter how slowly you drag the thumb.

However, with the addition of a modifier key, you can reduce that increment.

Once you click on the volume slider’s thumb, hold down the shift key to move in smaller increments.

This works on automation curves as well.

Just like the fader, even a small move doesn’t allow for a very fine adjustment but holding down the shift key does.

Additionally, this works on the Master Track’s Tempo, and the volume curve.

Note that the Master Track’s Pitch automation curve allows for single increment changes and doesn’t require the shift key One quick bonus tip, if you’re not using an automation curve, you can hold down the option key while clicking on the thumb of the Volume fader in either a regular track, or the Master track, and the thumb will reset to the 0Db mark.
