Finishing a shed roof

What is the best way to secure the last course of asphalt shingles to a simple lean-to shed roof with no ridge or flashing because it is a stand-alone wood shed? Roofing tar/adhesive alone? Or tar/adhesive over roofing nails which secure that last course?

I would use a use a piece of flashing(drip-edge)that extended down the roof at least 3-4".Secure with screws with neoprene washers secure every 8-10".Anyways thats what I would do

I like to cover the nails. I use starter strips and roofing tar. I cut the tar strip off of the starter, using what is left, so that it looks like a shingle without notches. I then put 2 lines of tar (one at top & one at bottom) to secure the strip to the shingles. Put a filler tar strip at outside of roof to keep wind from getting under the strip. Be sure the joints do not align also.
Of course I use drip edge on all 4 side before shingles go on and run a strip of tar on the top dripedge to hold the shingle down also.
