Question Shingle Starters

What is the difference between 3 tab and architectural shingles when starting a new row? I've done 3 tab shingles in this manner: 1st row start with a full shingle, 2nd row start with 2 1/2 tabs, 3rd row start with 2 tabs, and so on til you get down to 1/2 tab then start over. With the tabs on architectural being so different how is this done?

Also, what is the easyiest way to figure out how to cut the bird's mouth on your rafters?

Shingle manufacturers specifications on the shingle package will show you how to properly install the product so your warranty will be good. If you install them wrong you will not have a warranty.
