raise everything on the high E string two frets and work out how to play the low E and A strings in a higher octave

Hi

To convert guitar tab to banjo:
You can use a chord chart and, as Free bird mentioned, best transposed into the key of G for most banjos.
The guitar and the banjo (and the piano...and other instruments) are tuned to "concert pitch" or C--where a C is the same note for all instruments. For other instruments with different pitch ranges, like the sax, or trumpet, etc., C is a different note.
I just play the chords to convert my guitar tab in banjos.
