Default Clean grip snatch

In Mike Boyle's latest article:

Mistake #12 is Not teaching the athletes to snatch sooner - which after meeting Dan John, it seemed to make sense to me.

Mistake #13 - Starting to teach snatches with a snatch grip

That is the one I'd like some input on, I tried a clean grip snatch yesterday just a few to see how it'd go and I found it to be REALLY awkward. I'd much rather do a dumbell snatch than that a clean grip, I had to force myself to not clean it because that's what felt natural. With the clean grip I also felt like it was harder to keep the bar close to the body as with the snatch grip width.

Anyone actually use/implement these?
