What is the best way to finish a seam where one piece of drywall overlaps anothe

I replaced a tub with a shower enclosure. The shower is 1/2 inch narrower than the tub was so I had to shim the wall our inch.

To bring the drywall down to the top of the enclosure I will have a seam where the new drywall will overlap the existing drywall.
Any suggestions.

Too computer illiterate to post a picture. I don't have a facebook account and have too much garbage on my computer to load any more programs.

Solved the problem with drywall mud and wood trim.

The only difference between me and a skilled craftsman is the width of my trim.
