Scraped down shingles - Type of primmer?

I have cedar shingles that were painted over twice - really old. So I scraped off all peeling paint and then some. Just finished sanding it with 60 grit palm sander. I didn't want to sand off to bare shingle.

Can someone recommend what to do next. I have a Cabot's Stain I want to put on as a finish coat. Does the type of primmer matter? Latex vs. Oil, Ben Moore vs. California?

Please advise.

Which cabot stain are you using? latex or oil? semi-transparent or solid?

Generally stains don't require a primer but under certain circumstances one is needed with latex stains.
