It's not that. It's very disjointed. Left hand a little strong, right hand weak.

Before I start practicing a less-than-desirable grip, is this better? I want to have the right feel before I engrain the wrong thing.

Think about where the Vs are pointing. Left hand only, see where it points in a mirror. Then right hand should over lay the thumb so it’s V points in the same place. The right hand here looks weak because it’s pointing straight up. The other check for the left is how many knuckles you see at set up.

so, if my left hand is a bit strong, my right V should be pointed in the same direction? is not that what Erik wants me to address? I think I'm confused

Yes. But the video you posted has a strong left hand and weak right hand. Just rotate the right a bit to be stronger and make sure it sits on the left thumb along the life line.

A bit, but I think your right hand should sit higher on your left and even be a little stronger to match the left. It is like they are separated too much.

Exactly this.

Bringing hands closer with more overlap definitely feels different. 
 

It should feel different, more compact like both hands are one. FWIW, when Erik posted that video about the grip in October, I rechecked mine and I was off too. I saw movement when I gripped tighter (face closing). So I check it every time I grip now. It will feel odd for a while, but keep checking it. Try getting them more overlapped too. The Vs look better.

Now put your right thumb on the grip.

Jonny, how long have we been doing this?

You should come up for some work sometime.

ok.

apparently not long enough. 

agreed - need to wait til kids/wife's schedule slow down a little.  I've thought about it several times. I will definitely respond better to in-person instruction
