Firstly, C E G are the notes to the chord C Major, not G.

It's probably best to not think about it from a musical theory point of view, by thinking about "what notes make up these chords and where are they on the fretboard".

Just start learning some basic chord shapes, and then if you understand why the chord consists of the notes, and where they are, well that's an added bonus.

C E G is a C major triad, not G major. The full C major chord is C E G C E, if you play it across all five strings.

C is located at the third fret on the fifth string. E is the second fret on the fourth. G is the open third string. High C is the first fret on the second string. E is the open first string.

You first need to learn that a guitar isn't a piano, and then just go find some chord diagrams on the internet.
