Kevin is right. Only 3-4 inches overlap on the tar paper is fine. Use the three tab shingles upside down for your starter row. Don't forget the drip flashing and if you can overhang the first row about an inch. That should do it. For the ridge row, make them out of three tab shingles and start on each end and work to the center then your final shingle will seal it up and look good.
