removing granite backsplash


I recently had a new granite countertop installed w/ a 4" granite backsplash. I want to remove the backsplash so I can have more space to install an elaborate tile backsplash.

I've been told just to rip it out (careful enough not to hurt the counter).

Should I use the caulk remover to try and soften and break the connection/adhesive?

Thanks.
