One common transition is called the chromatic approach, in which you play a note a semitone below or above the next chord as you transition into it. For example: You play a G major and then you transition into, lets say... a C major with a B.
Sorry if that's confusing.
#4
i typically use chord voicings like 7ths sus4s add9s of the first chord to transition to the next depending on which chord im switching to and what sounds good in the song

i never started learning stuff like this till i started playing in my church band

In addition to the chromatic approach, you can also use the scale approach, which uses the adjacent scale tone (instead of the chromatic one I mentioned in the last post), or the dominant approach, which uses the 5th of the targeted note.
