For example, links to videos or pictures where it's broken/slowed down?
I started with the Basic Support Swing on Rings:

This (WFS) is where I started...

Here (WFS, has an ad at the beginning) is the first good video that popped up of what a good support swing looks like...though the young man is on get the idea.

Then after becoming used to this, just follow Coach Sommer's Swinging Dip progression...he has videos (on p-bar as well though).

edit: There's probably much better video of a support swing on rings then mine, as I'm just a CF'er utilizing gymnastics like most everyone else here...If you search and find one, pls post it here.
