are the acoustics of a garage generally favorable or worse for recording?

concerning the cement floor, and a 15x25 room with 'Ruberoid' walls.

ah man, that chicken band really does sound like it's in a garage. son of a bitch.
i don't really have a choice, since i cleaned the hell outta mine and set up a lot of gear, except for the recording gear that i don't have.

any suggestions to make my recordings sound best as possible?

curtains, isolation, carpets on the floor, if you have a big music supply store there should be a sound technician that can help you out to get the acoustics you want

ah true, so by that rational i'm assuming hard surfaces generally suck for recording.

Yeah, you can get outdoor carpet pretty cheap. That and some 1/2 or 5/8 carpet padding underneath I think would help a lot.
