Once a guitar player has progressed from open chords they usually end up learning the E and A shape bar chords. There are other bar chord shapes. They can be quite challenging. The C-shape bar chord is reasonably comfortable to play, move into and move out of once you get the hang of it. Like all bar chords the C shape is movable. After you get control of this E Major chord try moving it up and down the fretboard to discover new versions of chords you already know.
The low E string is not played, and the root note is the A string note.
