I don't know of any sites that deal exclusively in chormatic ( melodic) playing. There are a number of books available on the style...

The best way to learn it is to listen to melodic runs and figure them out for yourself by ear. There are programs that will slow down music. Melodic improvisation really requires you to be able to hear what you want to play before you play it. It's just like speaking.

The best picker is the one having the most fun.
