Modulating from one key to another

Since the lyrics both express the same sentiment, and the melodies are not far off, I’m trying to combine “Here’s That Rainy Day” with “It Never Entered My Mind” as a medley or a mash up. I’d like to include musical quotations from each song in the other. I’d like to keep each song in its original key (G for Rainy) and (F for It Never.) I can transpose the quotations from one key to the other, but I’m having a hard time making a smooth transition between the two songs. What’s the best way to do this?

Hi @wendy,

Here’s a little video showing a modulation from a tune ending in G major, to a tune starting in F Major.

I use the tunes “Shadow Of Your Smile” modulating to “Nearness Of You”.

The modulation is Gmaj7 --> E7alt --> A-7 --> D7 --> G-7 --> C7 --> Fmaj7

Hope that helps and let me know if you have any questions.

Cheers!
