It is tricky.  I myself have been trying to ease off of the western a little.  It takes time, and I have been doing it just a little at a time.  Changing grips has always been tricky for me though.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

you shouldn't be changing your grip just for the hell of it. Just rally a couple forehands and whatever is most comfortable/effective, go for it. otherwise, u'll just be messing up ur entire feel of the game.
Be the change that you seek.
