Hello again everyone :)
Could you please help me with the following?
Today one of my friends sent me a you tube link of a song & I told her, " I don't like this artist much now. I used to do earlier'.
Is the usage of 'earlier' correct to denote a former unspecified time when I used to like? Or should I use 'before' or 'previously' instead of 'earlier'?

    You can use "earlier" in your text.
    But you have a major error in your text. You wrote: "I used to do earlier" The word "do" is incorrect here. Your sentence should read" "I used to earlier".
