Some of it's right, but it looks like this Hippyshoota character was trying to hard.... I'll say it again, Version 1 is the correct one.

I take it back ^, I tried it again and found it to be very well done, but kind of difficult with all the different chords and all. I'm still going to say Version 1 is still better and easier to do!
