    With the many song intros done with an acoustic guitar, I find it difficult to have one as a favorite.

    I can't pick just one..

    Dave Stewart & Candy Dulfer - Lily Was Here 

    Although that does not exactly start with guitar, it's excellent all the way through.

    America - Horse With No Name

    Red Hot Chilli Pepper - Californication (though I don't particularly like the rest of it..)

    "Over The Hills & Far Away"  Led Zeppelin.

    "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp"    Led Zeppelin.

    "Spiral Architect"  Black Sabbath.

    "Classical Gas"  Mason Williams.

    "Maggie May"  Rod Stewart.  

    To add; Stairway To Heaven does NOT have an intro.

    "Roundabout" is a good choice.

    Steve Howe of Yes is my favorite guitarist, to pick which solo is my favorite is tough. For technicality, I'd say "Mood for a Day" is his best solo, but the one I like the best, my "favorite," as it were, is his solo work in the acoustic version of "Roundabout," the intricate fingering and the harmonics, where he lightly touches the strings with his fingering hand to get them to play an octave higher than they should is out of this world. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a YouTube video of him actually doing it on an acoustic, only on electric and others doing it on acoustic because it's a piece so famously difficult that many guitarists commit to learning how to do it just to show how good they are, Steve Howe being a guitarists guitarist, the guitarist that guitarists idolize. The only acoustic version of Roundabout on YouTube has him changing the intro, but I have a Yes vinyl record from 1974 that has him playing it acoustically as it's normally played, but I don't know how to upload it for you.
