Sure you can. No need for anything drastic.
When you are about to shift to a harder gear, hold off for a minute and pedal just a bit faster in the same gear. Repeat regularly, so you get used to spinning your legs at a slightly higher RPM.
Bikes: Old steel race bikes, old Cannondale race bikes, less old Cannondale race bike, crappy old mtn bike.
