Which, correct me if I'm wrong, is playing from E to octave E in the key of A.

Use the E major scale. You can't use A major because your in the key of E major.

Incorrect. There is no Dchord, or even Dnote for that matter, in a E major scale.

I suggest if you keep things simple (which I'm sure you'd like, and this is no offence ) you can play in Amajor. However, since you start on an Emajor chord, the technical name for it is Emixolydian. This has the same notes as an Amajor scale, so don't worry about that too much.
