There are so many songs that have major -minor chord movements you couldnt began to name them.

Yep, the chord progression has a Cmaj followed by Cm.

TS, is this the kind of 'minor fall' you're asking about?

or are you just after something like G - Am, cos that sort of thing is in millions of songs.

I think he might mean a major chord that falls to its own minor. Like the classic IV-iv-I.

^You can try that one, although it's not in the main progression.
The most obvious one, as it's been said, is Creep.
Love Boat Captain by Pearl Jam is also a good one.

I'm going to have to be frank here. I have never, in my experience, heard of a harmonic movement referred to technically as a "minor fall" short of Hallelujah.

The above quoted examples have different motions.. Context, modulation, movement proper.. Can someone explain to me exactly what we're all referring to as a "minor fall"?

I just learn the formula, apply it to a key, and use said notes on fretboard. Why? Cuz I'm not a pussy.

I'm pretty sure, as stated above, it would be something like from C to Cm, D to Dm, etc.

my example would be:

Does anybody know what it's called when a major chord in a chord progression is replaced by the minor chord with the same tonic? At first I thought it was minor substitution, but I don't believe it is.
