    Going from the lowest pitch string up, written out for the non-musical folk:

    1. 2. 3. 4.
    E: f. f#. g. g#
    A: a# b. C. c#
    D: d# E. f. f#
    G: g# a. a#. b
    B: C. c# d. d#
    E: f. f#. g#. a

    Play the capitalized letters just as the O.P. says, and you get a C major chord. From low to high: E-C-E-G-C-E.

    that's not how you play it. it's first fret second string, third fret fourth string and fourth fret fifth string.
