Drip Edge at Rakes

Looking for some ideas about how to install drip edge along my rakes. I'm replacing some fascia board with fiber cement and guidelines call for drip edge. The drip edge is supposed to be installed over the felt at the rakes. I'm installing the fascia on a 12/12 pitch 2 plus levels high. I would prefer not having to pull nails and loosen shingles to install the drip edge. I figure I could cut small slits in the drip edge to allow it to slip around any existing nails. Then add a bead of roofing cement along the top of the drip edge to adhere to the underside of the shingles. Is that a bad idea?

Maybe this type F (the various ones start with "F") is what I want? Just read something suggesting type F is used for existing roof applications. I assume the ridges are going help hold it in place once slipped under the shingles.

Looks like the roofing cement idea is the way to go, at least according to an article by "This Old House".
