Does it have to be the actual high E string? Because you could play a chord with the bass note at the 9th fret G string or 14th fret D string, which is the same exact note at the same octave, just a different string.

For example, this is an E major chord:

e-16-
B-17-
G-16-
D-14-
A----
E----

That's not physically possbile exactly an octave up unless you can barre 12 while fretting 19 and 21.

Maybe we could be more helpful if you explained why you need to find such a chord.

You could play an A major chord...the E note is the fifth in the A major scale, the dominant note.
#9
You want the dominant note on the thin E string?

By dominant note do you mean the fifth, or do you mean the note that affects the sound the most?

If you mean the dominant as in the fifth you could merely play a regular A Major chord, or a C chord (with your pinky on the third fret of the thin e).

If you mean the dominant note that affects the sound the most, try A7.

Yeah, dominant? Other than what's already been suggested, all I can think of is what the dominant seventh. Which would be F#7. So 242322 or 242320.
