This is incorrect according to the official tab book - but not complaining, it sounds good this way.

This is much closer than your first effort.
Again, I'd say that the end of the intro riff (fig 1a, as you call it here) is this:

D ------------------------
A ------------------------
F ------------------------
C ------------------------
G -----5------------------
C -0-3---5-3p0-5p0-3h5----

It sounds a little off at first but, if you get it up to speed and play along to the CD, you'll find that it is right.
