Rob, you need to tell us which open E tuning.  There would be at least several ways to do it.   I would suggest Googling Horvath open E.    This Mr. Horvath has a lot of info and finger chord charts for the open tunings.  Good guy.   Good stuff.

 

For a really low tone you could use the 4 big strings from a set of 6 and tune them E-B-E-G♯.   Mr. Horvath's stuff should be helpful if that was the case.   You would just view the charts and omit the two high strings.   Of course played with a slide, you would mostly use open -  an E chord,  5th fret an A chord and 7th fret, B chord.  For blues, add a large dash of the slide across the 3rd fret and occasional use of the 12th. 

EG#BE...is my tuning...it sounds great with this build...thanks for info.......just need to know where things are

So that's 1-3-5-1 in terms of scale degree... 1st note, 3rd note, 5th note, 1st note an octave up.
Any major chord is 1-3-5. So you could: bar at 5th fret for your A chord (4 chord) bar at 7th fret for your B chord (5 chord).
Count up your frets: open is E, 1st fret is F (there is no E sharp or F flat note or chord) 2nd fret is F# (F sharp) 3rd fret is G. .. When you get to B there is no B sharp or C flat so you jump direct.to C...
Any fret, any chord, if you fret your first and third & 4th strings there and fret your second string one fret lower you'll produce a minor chord named by the counting system I showed you above...
Search youtube for my name & view my free tutorials on music theory for beginners. You can figure out your own chords and don't need any charts.
This ain't rocket science.

Rob, I think those chord charts from Hovath will work fine.  Just use the four small strings off the chord charts.   For the most part, you just need to use the open E and the slide or finger chords for the A and chords.  I just messed with that tuning on a six and the finger chord A and B should be easy 2 finger chords.   Good wishes.  Over and out.
