Putting drywall up in the garage and there will be some edges that
will be exposed and not flush with other drywall and not in a corner.
What is the best solution as to how to treat these edges? Is there
tape I should put over the ends prior to using a drywall compound on
the seems, or simply paint the edges, etc. ????
Not sure how you got that situation, but a more durable and better approach to
taping would be to use a 1" or 2" wide piece of trim wood that was the same
thickness as the drywall. You could even use 1/4 round if you match the drywall

J mould may be difficult for a beginner. L mould in plastic or
metal may be easier as it can be installed after the drywall is up
and it lends itself to mudding in better.
I prefer the plastic trim like Trim Tex. Go here
