The stepped method works, but I don't like the appearance. I find the seams much less noticeable when they are random. I make sure they are spaced at least a few feet apart, and I try not to have any seams in the same spot even if it is several courses up. I waste more siding, but it is a nicer appearance.

I do the same, random. I keep the tape in the pouch and keep them at least 2' apart. Don't forget to cut for expansions if you run a cut end in the field.

Also. adjacent pieces should overlap so the the overlapping sections will be closer to end of the wall from which you want the junction to be least visible - makes quite a bit of difference.

Home Inspection: "A business with illogically high liability, slim profit margins and limited economies of scale. An incredibly diverse, multi-disciplined consulting service, delivered under difficult in-field circumstances, before a hostile audience in an impossibly short time frame, requiring the production of an extraordinarily detailed technical report, almost instantly, without benefit of research facilities or resources." - Alan Carson
