if you're talking about the main riff, it actually starts on the 2nd fret, since racer-x tuned down a half-step on the "Second Heat" album. Other than that, your notes seem to be correct, although i play the scale a little differently (note the jump to a major pattern starting on the 5th fret).

The Young guitar tab is right IMO because the important thing is the rhythm. Remember Paul's first lick on his first vid, where you cross the string with the up pick? Well on that spot in Scarified the rhythm changes to triplets and that fingering is the most economical for the RIGHT hand. Of course you can do it the other way but it is easier to keep the triplets tight with the drums if you shift up on that spot. Man that is a great lick!
