While developing your ability to come up with melodies, ease back on the typical guitarist's phrasing choices: bends, pinch harmonics, pull offs, etc. Just focus on the notes and play them straight in an almost child-like way.

Listen to other genres of music which have long-line melodies. Maybe a few good film score main themes.

When you've developed the ability to imagine a melody, you can integrate phrasing and embellishments.
