Here's an 'outside the box' technique that might work (haven't tried it yet but maybe later): Put a sturdy support under the shingle and press hard with a pizza wheel as follow your chalk line. The thin circular blade should be fairly self cleaning and if you warm the shingles well with a heat gun the job ought to go fairly quickly. Amazon has pizza wheels if you don't know what they look like. This would have the advantage of avoiding cold splintering of the old shingles with toothed saw or similar. If you value your happy home don't try one from SWMBO's kitchen tool set.
