I may pick up the mountain dulcimer one day just to add to the obscurity level of my instrument collection.

I have a friend that used to make mountain dulcimers when he was younger.  Beautiful instruments,  but I prefer more frets or none at all.   Smiley

So, you'd rather be fret-less, or... fretful?  Hmmm.... Grin

Maybe, I should be more fret-less.   Smiley

Me too! .. Oh, I am!  No frets on the MO! And I did away with my guitar years ago.
Fretless and fancy free.

I do love the sound of a mountain dulcimer.  Too bad they are not very popular except for Appalachian music.

They would probably sound real good behind your Ocarina in a recording.   Smiley

Well, we bought my dad a G and C MO for Christmas and he has similar questions on transposing music. My husband, (smaness for those of you newer to the forum) explained Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La,  Ti, Do, to him.  My dad seemed to understand it.  That made me think that if I can just break the scale down that simply then I might not have as hard of a time learning the different keys. I don't know I still want to be lazy though. :-)

Have you tried using number scales? Instead of having all of these letters to remember (even if you have mnemonic devices to help) you could just assign each note a number so that you have a single set of numbers to remember instead (I.e. c=1, d=2, e=3, etcetera). This method works pretty well for me.
