Step 4: Creating the Swoosh
Duplicate the filled layer by dragging it down to the Create New Layer button.
Scale the copied layer down a bit so that it looks like the image below. (Command-T/Control-T to access the Free Transform Tool).
Click Return/Enter once you're satisfied with the shape.

Step 6: Rotating the Swoosh
Drag the swoosh layer beneath the Text Layer
With the swoosh layer still selected, click Command-T/Control-T to Rotate the swoosh.

Step 7: Loading the Selection
Command-Click/Control-Click on the Swoosh Layer to load the selection.

Step 8: Positioning the Swoosh
With the swoosh selected, hold down the Alt Key and use one of the selection tools to select the part of the area you want the ring to go behind. In my example, I used the Polygon Lasso tool to go around the bottom right hand part of the Letter but you could use the rectangular, elliptical, or any of the others. Just make sure to go around the part of the letter that you want the swoosh to go behind.

Click Delete and you're finished.
For added effects, apply some Layer Effects to your final image
