You could just play:
E 3
B 4
G 5
D 5
A 3
E x

It's a bit easier.

this simply has root c on the low e string instead of the A, doesnt make a make a massive difference, simply easier to get to if your higher up the neck. it does incorporate a higher c so it will sound richer.

funny, I play it:

sometimes I just play Csus9 to get a sort of minory sound

0
3

and found that Csharp9 could work in a pinch

and Cmaj7 can do, as well

it depends on the voicing in the song, you can play around with it and find what works for you.

You can barre it, though the first way OP posted can also be done for a slightly more mellow tone. You just have to arch your fingers a little more. If your hands aren't very big though or if your fingers are a bit short then playing it as a barre chord will be much, much easier.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
