Hi Aaron,

You need to look at the variations of Ticks[].

Given the plot

	plt = Plot[Sin[\[Pi] x] , {x, -\[Pi], \[Pi]}]

we can make it look a little better after defining the ticks using

	ptik = {#, #} & /@ Range[-\[Pi], \[Pi], \[Pi]/2];  (* Pi scale *)
	vtik = {#, #} & /@ Range[-1, 1, 1];				(*
visible *)
	itik = {#, "", 0} & /@ Range[-1, 1, .1];	(* length = 0 =>
invisible *)
	ytik = Join[vtik, itik];

and use them 

	plt = Plot[Sin[\[Pi] x] , {x, -\[Pi], \[Pi]}, 
		FrameTicks -> {{ytik, None}, {ptik, None}}]

You could also play with style for particular ticks.

Regards,

Dave.
