Am I able to simulate volume controls on a non-rooted phone? (Freaking Verizon AGAIN)

So I am re-purposing an old LG V20 as a music player. Everything is perfect, it's a great phone, except that the reason I got a new one is that the volume keys are jacked. Press Volume Up, and it will suddenly stick and jump all of the way up. I'm not sure what's up, but it sucks. Right now, my workaround is to press Volume Down, so the volume popup appears onscreen, and drag it where I want, but if I could make Vol Up and Vol Down buttons in Tasker, it would be nicer and give me more granular control. I just don't know if I can do that or not. Like I said, phone isn't rooted because Verizon is run by jerks who want to fill your phone full of bloatware that nobody even uses, but they still draw a paycheck for.

Anyway, tips and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Within tasker you can use the keyboard action for volume up/down then set shortcuts/widgets to link to the tasks

Thanks, looks like what I needed. I wasn't finding one when searching, except one that stated right off the bat that the phone needed to be rooted. Which is why I posted and listed int he subject that the phone wasn't rooted. I was hopping there was a possible solution for us folks that are stuck with Verizon's crap.
