This bend works with an F chord, and this is another whole step bend.

Put your ring finger in the 16th fret on the 2nd string, and your middle finger in the 15th fret on the 3rd string.

Play the 2nd, and 3rd strings by pulling up with the fingers, or you can keep using the pick with a downstroke. Bend the 3rd string up a whole step, and then release it. Then play the note in the 13th fret on the 3rd string, and then the note in the 15th fret on the 4th string.

The Bb note on the 3rd string is the 4th note in the scale, and you're bending it up to the 5th note in the scale. I know you're thinking this would be an A#, but the A note is the 3rd note in the scale. The Bb and the A# are the same note, but in this case it would be called a Bb.
