In a former time, I played bass/mando in a Zep cover band. My research this afternoon has included an album by Dread Zeppelin, another Zep cover band. (IMO, they are awful) Their version of Black Dog had little which would be recognized as bends.

The notes from Merriam-Webster suggest that the original occurrence of embiggen meant “to make great”. Let me know when you have the “Make SCSI Great Again” baseball caps ready.

My homework was based on listening to some Zep. But I’m sure you got to:

The verb's first recorded use is in an 1884 edition of the British journal Notes and Queries<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notes_and_Queries>: A Medium of Intercommunication for Literary Men, General Readers, Etc.by C. A. Ward, in the sentence "but the people magnified them, to make great or embiggen, if we may invent an English parallel as ugly. After all, use is nearly everything."[2]<https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/embiggen#cite_note-2>

A curse be upon you. After seeing this, I ended up on a 15 minute sojourn through Googleland researching the true origin of this fine word. No, it didn’t come from the Simpsons first, although their contribution is truly cromulent.

Enjoy Shakopee folks,

"Finally, there’s the small bends against the open string, most prominently heard in the intro to “Whole Lotta Love.” Like the bending into a chord heard on “Black Dog,” this was probably employed to embiggen the guitar sound. In this instance, though, it also adds a bit of dissonance, giving the riff its unique swagger. “

Just something seen on an unrelated channel. Enjoy.
