Start the lead lines with a low volume on your guitar, once the line gets to a high point, turn up the volume(perhaps with a bend), then do what feels right. This could create an intense sort of emotional sort of thing, if you really put yourself into it(which really helps with this sort of genre, or it will all just sound boring). A good vibrato is crucial.

EDIT: This is one method of making things interesting, there are millions of approaches to this genre(like any other genre), depending on the type of song you want to write.
