Grip definitely makes a big difference. For the Marine Corps PFT, they actually had the bar taped with the sticky side out (I kid you not!), and it was almost too easy. My hands were secure, I barely had to hang on at all. Banged out 20+1 for Chesty easier than ever. So, yes, I'd agree that a slackened grip definitely taxes the rest of your arm more.
