So I currently have the luxury of an unattached garage, and like anyone with one should, bought an acoustic kit to replace my electric one. Bought a bunch of moving blankets in hopes of dampening some of the sound but still it is not as quiet on the outside as I would like. Trying not to <<annoy>> the neighbors. The space I am trying to "soundproof" is the back half of an unattached garage. It is about 10'x 10' with 8' ceilings. I've already covered 5 sides in the blankets. Is there anything else I could try, I would prefer it to be as cheap as possible or even free. Doesn't even need to be pretty. Cardboard? Insulation? Am I even close?

Not going to like this, but you're never going to achieve your hopes and dreams of soundproofing your space without some investment and time (and talent building helps!) Blankets help the player as they can cut the high frequencies I believe, but it's the lows that travel. If you really want it to work with a kit in a garage, ultimately you need a room inside the room with dead air space in between. With everything else (blankets), you're treating it, defusing the waves, but you'll never soundproof it this way.
