Assunto:  that/who?
 
Mensagem:  It's important to for me to help everyone that who want wants to play (the) guitar.

In this particular sentence, is there really any difference between that and who? As far as I can tell from Murphy's English Grammar in Use (Units 91 to 95), this kind of sentence does not add extra information on who's willing to learn how to play the guitar so that is allowed according to him, now in:

John, who is an excellent musician, wants to help everyone who/that wants to play the guitar.

The first who gives extra information on John, so that couldn't be used.

What do you (in general) think?
