Apologies as my post might be best over in the General Discussion category but I figure this thread is monitored closely...

I've spent a great deal of time lately listening to & watching the Earls of Leicester.  Fantastic stuff!  In fact, if you haven't watched the webcast of Uncle Flux from the 2014 Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Fest it's an absolute must watch.  Start to finish, tight, crisp bluegrass music at its best. 

http://www.hardlystrictlybluegrass.com/2014/webcast/

There's a couple songs on the webcast I cannot find the chords for on the internet (only lyrics).  Does anyone out there know the chords for On My Mind and You're Not A Drop in the Bucket?  Undoubtedly these are simple chord progressions but I just can't make it out while watching the video.   Also, any recommendations on a comprehensive Flatt and Scruggs book?

Early planning for TBF 2016 is commencing.  The line up looks great.  Can't wait to be back for my 5th in a row and 6th overall.  Festival!

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!  Happy planning!

It looks like they play it in D
Try these simple chords:

D                                                                 G      D
You're not a drop in the bucket when it comes to lovin' me
D                                           E7             A
For I'm the kinda feller that you seldom ever see
D                                     G                   D
When I go honky tonkin' my heart gets on a spree
D                                                    A      A7         D
You're not a drop in the bucket when it comes to lovin' me
G                     D                                                        A       A7         D 
Lovin' me lovin' me you're not a drop in the bucket when it comes to lovin' me
