Well, it's just a rumor unless you got a screen shot.
Oh...er...you do have a screen shot.
Hint for next DLC
Read the forums. :-P

If anything it's easier for the beginners to know to palm-mute the chords as they'll get the palm-muted single notes before they're chords. Not too hard to figure out that the palm-muting doesn't disappear when it goes to a chord. Same with chord slides. They need to incorporate both into their notation somehow though.
We're glad there's a lot of excitement and speculation on our upcoming DLC content. These songs (from Evanescence, Foster the People, Maroon 5, and Judas Priest) are in fact DLC content we plan on releasing for April. Stay tuned throughout the month for exact release dates.
These are really fun songs to play and add a great amount of variety to Rocksmith. We hope you're excited as well. For now, enjoy all the Blues DLC.
