Open D tuning is easy to learn. Tune the strings like this (from string 6 (E) to string 1 (e)): D A d f# a d'. This way the six open strings give a D major chord! (See also notes 'IMPORTANT' below!)
D
To play the blues here are some other chords you can use with this open D tuning (D-Blues: D G A):

G/D
G
C/G
A
D/A
IMPORTANT: These chords, like written above, will not sound like they should because the tuning is not changed! You will have to play them on your own (D-tuned) guitar to get the right sound!

Good luck!
