These 3 string guitars are normally tuned to an open chord such as G or D.   From a standard pack of 6 strings take the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Strings and string the guitar.

For open G tuning tune the 5th string to G, the 4th to D and the 3rd to G (an octave higher than the 5th).  When you play with a slide the fret positions will give you accurate chord changes.

To tune to open D tune the strings to D A D.
