Cut off your neighbours ears? Van Gogh their asses

I think putting things like mattresses and sheets up against the walls etc is suppose to help

Egg Cartons don't actually work
They displace sound, not absorb it.
Get some loft insulation, some mattresses and some foam padding or something
Stick that on the walls

the egg cartons and stuff will do a certain amount, but its not going to be sound-proof.

this whole thing will all depend on your definition of "Soundproof" and your definition of "Cheap".

if you really want the place to be soundproof, you'll want density, as in Concrete and ultra-dense insulation like Rockwool, that'll kill the sound. egg cartons and blankets will at best, dampen the high frequencies.

sound-proofing isn't a cheap job unfortunatly.

what i would suggest id for the time being not playing after 9pm, and take the time to start a band. Get the members to show some dedication and after a few months suggest that soundproofing the garage would be in the bands interest. That way the cost is split 3/4/5 ways.....
