What kind of Underlayment to use for Bamboo Upstairs


Hello I live in Houston TX where the EMC (equilibrium moisture content) is rather high 8-13% and the weather is warm year round. I am planning on nailing down 1/2" solid stranded bamboo (with hand-scrapped finish) on my upstairs which has wood subfloor. I am wondering if I can use Felt paper as my underlayment (see link):

I wouldn't use anything that has asphalt in it.

Moisture content should be pretty stable and any one of the hardwood underlayment/slip layers should be sufficient.

Most manufacturers will make specifications for install as well.
