Best choice for cedar caulking


I am about to install western red cedar clapboard on the front of my garage. There is a 24" overhang, this side is in 1/2 morning sun and away from the usual rain. The cedar will be eventually finished with either a clear natural stain or very slight color with UV protection.
The western red cedar org. recommends acrylic-latex, acrylic, acrylic-silicone, polyurethane, polysulfide or terpolymer rubber caulks or sealants.
Can anyone make a recommendation on any of the above for this application?

Thank you,
Mike

Thanks for the link Bob. Some of these caulks say they are paintable and do you know if any are stainable?
