I bought "the little red book" and I intend to read it to get some tips. I will post a new video shortly.
I agree with @cipher here. That's a solid overall intro to a standard neutral grip. Not all those things are totally set in stone, but that's an excellent place to start from. But I also disagree with the video's note about the loose grip. Some good players, and some famous pros, advocate that kind of feel. So that's an option. But personally I again agree with @cipher's description of good grip strength.
Not that we should take much swing advice from Bubba with his unconventional swing, mad talent, and self-taught feels, but a quote from him on the grip is a feel I like. His advice was that you have to learn to work with the contradiction that you want a good strong grip with your hands and fingers so you can learn to control the club face, but at the same time keep the arms and wrists feeling relatively loose. That works well for me. The too stiff pushes could come from a real death grip on the club which is in fact too tight/strong, but for me that comes not from a too strong grip but from translating the strong grip pressure into too stiff wrists and arms.
Again, the exact feel here is personal and there's some range of grip strengths you can play well with. Just some stuff to think about.
