I landed my first one about a week ago. My only tips is to learn them first on a ramp(or atleast land a couple on ramps), and go SLOW when you try them(bunnyhop barspin), because you can mess up your front rim a lot if you don't get it all of the way around.
When you spin the bars only spin them using 1 hand. If you spin your bars clockwise spin your bars with your right hand and open you left hand to catch them when they come around. Other than that pinch your seat with your knees and pray for the best.

if you cant bunnyhop 2 feet without jumping on anything, then you are not ready. just learn how to jump and pinch the seat, and learn manual barspins.when you can do them both, just add them together.
