when i play lots of notes in a row my pick always slides away.(especially when playing it with open notes.
i know i'm holding it wrong but i can't change it any more . this is really annoying.
so does any one know if there are picks that 'stick' to you hand?

Thumbpicks are often used in blues music, country and bluegrass. You might like to try one.
Or you could just hold it tighter. I used to drop picks loads, but now don't.
I think it's something that changes eventually.

I've seen picks with holes cut in the middle that are supposed to aid in increasing grip. Don't know how effective they are though

I've done that with a few picks and it works pretty well. Just take a screw driver and a candle(keeping a lighter lit that long will mess it up if you have a cheap one) and put a hole in the pick. It'll take you a few picks to find a spot that works well for you.
You could try Snarling Dog's Brain Picks, I used to drop picks a lot when I first started and those helped me a lot.

OR you can just hole punch a pick for the same effect right?

(You can hole punch picks) If you were wondering =p

On my Fender Mediums, I cut some sandpaper to the shape of the pick (top 1/2 of the pick only) and super glue it on . Works well for me...

You might want to try the white Ibanez "Steve Vai" picks.
They're great, they have small rubber bumps on them and offer good grip.
