I think you mean green beam ;p

You are correct.

I one-tank Kara in a pug every week (4 guildies + any random ppl we know or just happen to pick up). I always put alternate myself between red and green. I put whatever we brought along as "OT" (which basically means whoever letse the skeletal ushers on the way to Opera hit them) in the red/green as well. That's either a fury warr, arms warr, or sometimes a feral druid (rarely). That leaves the guild warlock for one blue phase and either a pugged s priest (if we have one) for the other blue phase, or a mage+something to share a blue phase.
For beam assignments, I almost always give precedence to people who have seen Spite and/or tanked a beam before over someone who has never seen it, if only because it's hard to accurately describe to someone that has never been involved in the fight.
