Coming up with melodies to layer on top of something is not hard at all, you just need to sit back, listen, relax and have your guitar handy. I suggest starting doing improvisations over simple chord progressions. Like... make a riff that consists of 4 chords played over and over, and for each chord come up with a lick.

I work at a store and I had to set up some stuff in the cooler(where you grab sodas and shit), and even the hum of the cooling machine helped me come up with this really kick ass folky/celtic-style melody. In my head of course, so I forgot, but I remember it was really cool....
