Since we are talking about grammar, I ought to point out that the following is incorrect: 1) "It is me who played the guitar" a) The tenses should agree. 'played' is the past perfect tense b) Traditional grammar states that a pronoun following a linking verb such as "is" should be in the subject/nominative case. "It is/was I", "It is/was we" are strictly correct, however, English is currently changing (as it always has been) and many grammarians now accept that "It is/was me" and "It is/was us", when used on their own, are in such general use that the object/accusative case is also acceptable. The correct answer to the question "Who played the guitar?" should therefore be: either: "It was me."/"It was I" (the second being traditionally correct but sounding formal or slightly antiquated) or: "It was I who played the guitar." or simply "I played the guitar." The reason that "I" is more correct here is that "who" (in the subject/nominative case) directly follows it and substitutes for "I" in the clause, so the two should agree. "It was me who played the guitar." may, indeed, be heard frequently but still feels "uncomfortable" or "uneducated" to many English ears. For the same reason, "This is she", "It is we", "It was he", "It was she" are considered 'formal' and most speakers will now say "me", "him", "her", "us", "them" in place of "I", "he", "she", "we", "they" EXCEPT where the longer, more complete (and more formal) answer to the question is used. The same thing applies to comparative statements using "than" or "as [good] as". "She is better than I" is correct and formal; "She is better than me" is more commonly heard and acceptable. You should also note that "Their team was better than us" is strictly incorrect if "us" refers to a team ("our team"). You should say: "Their team was better than ours"!
