    A C major barre chord with two barres traditionally uses two fingers - the index finger to barre all the strings at the third fret (The low E string is muted or not played), and the ring finger to barre the D G B strings on the fifth fret.

    The final thing looks so:

    Basically it is an A major shape shifted three frets up.

    So practice with those fingers... That is the way it is supposed to be done...

    Instead of muting you can also choose not to play it at all... Just strike the higher five strings while strumming (like you do with an A major chord).
