It is a slow process but it is the only permanent process. If you use Contech PL400 construction adhesive also, it will require less screws.
I've been told to "fur" with 1x3 first.. foam insulate between.
I've also been told that a "22" nailer will shatter the block! So you ( and others ) are suggesting screw/glue fur into block and then nail or screw siding.
