Here's an interesting list of (Best?) acoustic intros. I'm sure many more could be added though:

I have watched that video at least twice in the last week.

A bunch of those are my go-to acoustic tunes. I was looking for more to add to the repertoire.

I always enjoyed "Classical Gas" by Mason Williams. It could have been added. Maybe not because the whole song is acoustic.

crazy on you has one of the best intros. id like to change the world is another good one. fade to black should have been on there too even though there is a pre intro intro.

fwiw I dont understand how he could say landslide doesnt count but babe im gonna leave you does...pretty much the same idea.

I am in love with the intro to South City Midnight Lady from the Doobie Brothers ... Open G tuning at its best ..

I’m kind of surprised that Maggie May didn’t at least make honourable mention.
Great list either way though.

Yeah, good one for sure!

One of my very favorite songs...

I believe he purposely left out intros that were basically all rythmic chords and not great melodic hooks. Kind of opinionated in choosing those that fit I think. Same with songs that were all acoustic in nature.
